Quackers and Crackers

  • They go together swimmingly

    Quackers and Crackers is an entertaining play on words that rhyme, perfect for the kitchen or nursery.

  • I gave this puntastic subject matter a dignified treatment, painting an image that would be right at home with the Dutch Masters of 400 years ago (aside from the waddling pull toy). Note the multiple layers of color for depth, the smooth surface texture, and the sharp shadows - all classic still life techniques to give our ducky image a rarified air.

    Other details

    This vintage mum duck and ducklings toy is lovely - the wooden wheels are offset so that, when pulled, the toy waddles. I have used it in several companion images including Cheese and Crackers and Duck Crossing.
