Daisy Duck - Princess of the Pond

Hardly had I finished the previous oversized drawing (and discovered it would not fit into the sleeve of my large folder folded once, so it's now resting on my piano stand), than I scribbled a quick string on a sheet of A3 paper. That's the size I like best (double letter size). Hardly had I finished a garland pattern right of centre than I could clearly see a duck! She could not be ignored, so I gave her a sleepy eye and a beak. It then became important to make the shapes fit a fat little duck. I scanned the raw drawing in and here it is:

A couple more sessions and the duck is now arrayed in pretty colours:
