This two-week-old duckling is having all the pleasure and fun of exploring his new surroundings. After splashing and searching through the water it soon learns, from watching its mum, the best way to reach right to the bottom of the water is to dive right under, so "Bottoms Up!!!".
A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted and the duckling, weed, and water line were achieved through quilting, applique, embroidery, textile techniques. These techniques create the different textures from the warm feathers to the delicate leaves. Unfortunately, the three-dimensional relief doesn't show particularly well in the photos, so please take a look at the depth of the piece to get an idea of the overall effect.
