This watercolour painting is an attempt to capture a typical scene you can witness around Yellowstone National Park, USA. The park is bursting with wildlife, and one of the iconic bird species are the beautiful Harlequin Ducks. This painting shows two males resting in the shallow wild water streams on a river bank. Reference material came from the Creature Art Teacher platform.
The proceeds of this artwork will go to the Greater Yellowstone Coalition, a US organisation that is protecting the greater Yellowstone National Park reserve and the wildlife that lives within, including birdlife and the natural river systems. When these rivers are protected, so are these marvelous Harlequin Ducks.
