The Sheldrick Family

I was asked if I would be up for painting a family of 5 ducks, at the begining the only thing she asked was that the Daddy Duck was Sheldrake Duck being their family name.

While sketching I had an idea so then asked if she liked the idea of maybe the toddler running away (I know her toddler!!!) this began the plan of all the children to be in character. "The inquisitive one", "The chatter box" and 'The escapee'!

I absolutely LOVED doing this painting and am now excited about further commisions of animal families!
