Sitting on the Fence

I’m just a friendly little duck
who’s balanced on a fence;
I wear a brightly coloured hat
and cause no-one offence.

When I grow big I’ll flap my wings
and hopefully I’ll fly,
But till that day I’ll just stand here
and watch the passers-by,

(Dave Edwards, 3rd June 2011)


FEATURED BY SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION GROUP – 21st May 2011

FEATURED BY 500 – 5,000 VIEWINGS GROUP – 10th July 2012

This is based loosely on a knitted duck belonging to our daughter. It was made by Jean, the wife of Redbubbler Peter Tucker.

I used coloured pencils and coloured fineliners.

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    This is really great Dave! I love the colors and the little duck is very cute. I can see what the real one would look like in my minds eye.

  • Thanks Chris. I seem to be happiest when I am drawing little creatures like this … maybe I am still a child at heart …… or entering my second childhood more like :)

    Are you sure the duck is knitted? It looks more like crochet to me, but very cute, either way, esp. the hat and scarf.

  • He’s knitted but I’m not very adept at telling the difference :) Glad you think he’s cute, ’cos so does he :)
