Sometimes in the morning, especially when it’s dark and cold, I wished I had a cat instead of a dog. Once outside, I quickly forget all this and enjoy the walk. Very often I feel privileged to have the parc for myself. During our walks the sunlight is still fragile and the parc wakes slowly up.
In the Netherlands we have a lot of ducks in our parks and I saw these just waiting to become a bit warmer and start the day.
Initially, I made a watercolor painting and much later I found a canvas that had the right size (20×40 cm) to make an oil painting of the same moment.
