Duck a l'Orange

I had to paint this adorable duck again and at a friends suggestion with oranges. : )
Its a sunny 18C today  and I've got housework : (   ....oh well...how about another duck quote!
"Painting is sometimes like those recipes where you do all manner of elaborate things to a duck,and then end up putting it to one side and only using the skin."  Lucien Freud
