My greatest challenge in creating this piece was to choose the right balance of colour and detail to ensure the viewer’s focus always returned to the expression of delight on the young boy’s face. The bright colours on the trim of both coat and boots were the perfect complement to the orange of the ducks feet bringing warmth into this otherwise cool winter scene. My style of painting is evident in this piece with a looser painterly feel on the ducks and snow moving to a slightly finer detail on the boy’s face.
