Shoot The Duck is painted using oil and acrylic on canvas. It is a large painting on an artist’s high quality Windsor and Newton stretcher which is warp resistant. The painting is made using large brushstrokes and the texture of the paint and brush marks are visible on the surface of the canvas.
The work is inspired by my love skater girls and places of pleasure - sometimes real and sometimes imagined. The painting is based on several different locations. The painting is designed first using a collage where I map out my composition. I then start working on the canvas and build the paint up using layer upon layer in order to keep the paint as fresh as possible. This painting depicts groups of skaters on a seafront with a pier visible in the distance.
