Dilly Duck by srechic

Dilly Duck

Today I had a "Beatrix Potter" day. I decided I'd like to be able to draw farm animals (something I've never tried before) and so spent the afternoon, cup of tea in hand, looking up pictures on the internet and sketching them out.

I'm actually quite proud of this duck, because half and hour earlier I couldn't draw a duck to save my life! Then finally, I drew this one. :) I'm most pleased.

Inspired by Miss Potter, I'm actually hoping to be able to write my own children's book. I don't know if I'll go through with it (I've "started" about 13 books so far, none of them got past the 3rd chapter) but I'm enjoying the thought so far. And I even have a feeling this one might come through... =)
Nice and simple !! I collect ducks, this would look good on the wall !!!
