boring, silver fish,” he adds with a
These pieces are often done
on commission, and Duff enjoys
the challenge of personalizing a wildlife
portrait for his customers.
For a commission depicting a king
mackerel, Duff composed the image
on a decommissioned chart of Harper’s
Island, where the buyer had recently
been married. In other examples, like
his portraits of a flier sunfish and a
redear sunfish, Duff selects charts from
areas where the animal can be found.
The process begins with a reference
image and a simple pencil sketch. Duff
often goes over the line drawing with
illustration pens. Then he lays down
a color wash before developing the
detail of the central image.
Duff typically works for 4-6 hours on
each piece. After allowing some time
for the colors to settle into the page, he
revisits the piece to add highlights and
reinforce the primary drawing.
Duff took a winding road before
settling in the Wilmington area. He
enrolled in a video editing program
at Elon University, transferred to Cape
Fear Community College and then
Cardinalis, 10 x 8 inches, ink and
watercolor on cold press paper.
