Unicorns, square circles and red Tufted ducks only exist in our art and imagination. Fantastic concept can inspire us endlessly. Ruddy Shelducks (Brahminy ducks) come close being red ducks but in fact they have orange-brown body plumage. My red Tufted ducks are deep red, dressed up with gold and a variety of different stitches. The satin glow of their pink chest give an impression that they just left the duck pond. While the last drops fall of their waterproof plumage, this cute couple starts preening their feathers.
I always use my own designs, based on my coloured pencil drawings or oil paintings.
