Now that I've done about a dozen and a half greenheads, I'm beginning to become a little less Ham Handed with the airbrush, and adding the shading a little a time. The subtle approach is the key, I find.
All the full body duck's greenheads are done, and now for the floaters.
I have really cheap floaters, but they will be perfect for practice.
Went to our DU committee meeting last night, and everybody saw one of the two decoys in the picture, and now they all want to bring the dekes over to learn how to do theirs also (as tho I should teach anybody).
Little do they know that once I get my hands on theirs, I'm locking the garage 'til their dekes are finished, then they can have them back! It'll be good practice for me.
I've got two DU banquets coming up, and all my tickets are going into the buckets next to duck decoys!
I've only got about 120 goose and duck decoys, and need to build my duck floaters up with some nice ones. Hope those tickets get drawn!
