The Ugly Duckling. by Sue Rundle-Hughes

The Ugly Duckling.
by Sue Rundle-Hughes

Prompt: My favorite fairytale.
prompted by: Sally Gilroy, during Sketch Fest #21 (December, 2011)

I really would like to finish this one, with rushes on the side and a pond in the background. The 'ugly duckling' in greys and whites of a cygnet and the little ducklings a colourful yellow :) The naughty ducklings are laughing at the poor cygnet :( I think I will put this up for sale but it's the sketch that is for sale as I don't know when I'll have time to paint it :)
