‘The Pondskater’ – mallard with ducklings

A beautiful painting of a mallard with her brood of ducklings is now taking shape on Colin’s easel. Protected by their mother’s presence, ten fluffy babies are snuggling up together while the eleventh is off on his adventures, in pursuit of a pondskater.    I love the droplets of water on the ducklings’ fluffy feathers, and the contented expressions on their faces.

This picture will be offered for sale when it’s finished, but if you fall in love with it you can always express an interest or reserve it now.   You can watch it in progress on Colin’s website under Latest Paintings.


  1. Very, very nice! Congratulations!

    • Thank you, on Colin’s behalf. It was a lovely painting, wish we could have kept it!
      Thank you also for all your ‘likes’ – glad you’re enjoying The Hazel Tree.
      Regards to Tom!
