About this artwork
Artist Onelio Marrero presents an impressionist scene of ducks wading by a river. I went to a nearby lake to observe ducks in order to paint this scene of Pekin Ducks, shares Onelio. He especially highlights the dancing reflections on the water and the effects of light on the animals' white plumage. The vivid color and rich strokes of the brushes and palette knives capture the effects of the ripples reflecting the sunlight and colors of early spring.
