Identify the ripples of the water and draw them in with Black. Begin filling in the water with Grass Green. Leave the area directly behind, below and in front of the duck the white of the paper. Add NonPhoto Blue into the duck's wake.
Use Greyed Lavender to create the form of the duck. Make sure not to pull the Greyed Lavender all the way out to the edges where the reflected light shines.
Base in the bill of the duck with Canary Yellow. Apply Orange over it, allowing the reflected light to remain along the bottom. Add some Orange to the water area under the duck to represent the bill's reflection, the leg and the foot.
