    Your color combination is so surprising, and it works beautifully! I love how you allowed the background to go abstract, which is probably much as we’d see it if we only were to capture the fleeting scene with our eyes (as opposed to the camera). Beautiful work, Robin!

  • oh I’m so glad you like, so enjoyed doing this. When I first glanced at the image I did see abstract. I decided to use more colors to get this abstract look in the background as well as blending in the same colors with the duck. Thanks so much Fran, truly appreciate:)
