Fine art illustration of a Mandarin Duck (Aix galericulata.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Mandarin Duck was completed on 12.13.2013. I recall seeing one of these wonderful ducks at a fountain in Dresden, Germany. I had never seen one before, and had no idea what type of duck it was. I did think that it seemed out of place in a country that is frequently cold and rainy. So, I wasn’t surprised to learn it was native to Asia and however it got there, it wasn’t supposed to be there. Since that time I’ve been meaning to draw this gorgeous looking duck. The drawing is based on a photo by Lawrence Neo and was used with permission.
