Cinnamon Teal Painting by eidolic Cinnamon Teal Painting by eidolic
7x10" acrylic painting, this year's entry into the federal duck stamp contest. It did not place.

Really was trying to teach myself the properties of water here, so it's what I tried to focus on most. I love how the whole thing came out, but I am not quite happy with the colors I chose. A bit too cool/blue for a stamp design I believe. Better luck next time I guess! Thanks for looking!

Gorgeous.

Perhaps a wash on a greenish tone could darken this cool hue?

Isn't that disgusting? Such a professional and beautiful painting that doesn't place? You gotta wonder what the heck they're looking for. I've submitted in the past and as far as design alone for a stamp, this is right on par. Too bad...awesome painting!

This is stunning!  The water actually looks wet, I mean, if I touched the painting my hand would come away 'wet'.  The teals are just gorgeous too.  I've seen the wild ones and you've captured them beautifully.

Well, hopefully the DD provides some compensation. xD
Amazing detail! I had to really stare at this before I realised it was a painting. You certainly have quite the talent for acrylic painting!

I would have used a stamp like this. ^^
