Mandarin ducks are so impressive and vibrant with their stunning array of colours.  I was inspired to paint Monty after spotting him near my home last winter.  During a very cold snap of weather the stream running along our garden had frozen over.  Amongst all the dark mallards was this magnificent oriental duck!

Against the backdrop of a grey cold winters day the vision of this bright, bold Mandarin duck really warmed my heart.  Monty impressively stands out from the gold, just as he does from the Mallards on the river! The radiant backdrop of gold sparkles in the light, exuding luxury, warmth and joy.

Mandarin ducks are symbols of love and fidelity and are often used as a feng shui cure to help maintain a healthy relationship.
