The Auk - Final

Copyright Benjamin Clock 2006
I worked back into the original painting this weekend to square away some final details before sending it off to the editors. Here is the final image. Mostly, I worked back in to the background vegetation, softening and adding some sap green and titanium yellow highlights, as well as some additional color in the throat shield irridesence. I think the image has a bit more depth now and I think it pops quite a bit more. This view is a little washed out looking, the original and the printed version on the Auk covers has a much more saturated look.
