This young and inquisitive duckling is having a happy time investigating his new surroundings in the water, his feet gently brush against something below. Being brave, he takes a deep breath and brakes the surface of the water with his beak. Taking a peek of the wonders of the underwater world, he finds the culprit and thinks "oh, that looks good enough to eat!"
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.
