Fine art illustration of a Ruddy Duck (Oxyura jamaicensis.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Ruddy Duck was completed on 8.9.2013. For as many years as I’ve been at this, I have relatively few ducks in the illustration library. I’m looking to correct that, and add more and more of these commonly seen waterfowl. The Bay Area where I live is on the “Pacific Flyway” so I get to see a lot of migrating birds come through on their way north and south. The drawing of the Ruddy Duck is based upon a photo by local Bay Area photographer Patty Bruno.
