    Good day of painting. Got another hen finished, minus the clear coat, and got feathers drawn on the backs of the other 5 as well as got a layer of lines on the back back feathers.

    Finished carving the wigeon deadmount, and painting has been ongoing. Nothing I want to rush. Still undecided on the tableau it will be mounted on.

    Meanwhile, I've started on a gunning mallard urn that has progressed to the sealer table and should be ready for painting to begin by the end of the week ---

    Lathe turned, lidded hardwood urn containing remains: IMGP1877 (2).jpg

    Some progression pics of the bird:
