Junior Duck Stamp 1998-1999

Artist: Erik Peterson, 18
Hometown: Red Ford, Mich.
Species: American black ducks

The 1998 Junior Duck Stamp features a pair of American black ducks painted by Erik Peterson, 18 at the time of his win and a native of Red Ford, Mich. In his painting, he was careful to create accurate plumage color on these birds, as they are often confused with mallards. Black ducks have a distinguishing purple wing patch, orange feet and a yellow bill. Peterson's painting is done in acrylic with an airbrushed background.
