Colours are beautiful Kathy. Just needs a few more darks in the shadings to create more dimension and depth. Well done.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Well done  :clap: i agree with Val needs shading on tree stump and water as it's looking one dimensional

The tree stump/log needs to recede a bit more, create some separation between it and the duck. That would help to bring the duck more to the fore.

Kathy,

Excellent colors.  Using the suggestions provided will give the duck the pop it needs to be the center of attention.
