    Get on the Dixie decoys site and click the how to, select Harlequin drake or Harlequin hen and it will give you a list of colors and instructions. It is a good basic pattern that you can add a bit to if you would like. The hen is a bit too brown for my liking but you could dry brush a little medium to dark gray on the sides. I'm sure one of the guys here will have a bit better advice but this will get you going.

    Remember to always have reference pictures when you are painting. I take my laptop to my painting room and pull up a bunch of pics of the bird I'm working on. Different angles, back, side, breast, head, a good view from above to see how things flow together.

    I have both a hen and drake mounted so I'll most likely use those for reference.
    Billy I sent you a message the other day did you get it?
