Artist Feature – Robert Duncan

a late feeding

“A Late Feeding”

The ground is snow-covered, so the horses haven’t been able to graze.  By the time the farmer gets out to the pastures late in the day, everyone is very hungry and pretty excited to get their share.  The horses are beautiful, in tons ranging from creamy white to deep black.  Robert Duncan shows the relationship between farm animals in this image- he relies on the horses to pull his sled and the horses rely on him to be fed.

a quiet place

“A Quiet Place”

Sometimes an afternoon in the garden is all you need to get away from it all.  Such is the case for this beautiful young lady and her feline friend, who headed out to tend her flowers and herbs in a blue plaid dress and an apron.  With “A Quiet Place”,  Robert Duncan has created a very relaxing yet pretty piece which is immediately likable.

anticipation

“Anticipation”

On a quiet spring morning, as the snow melt fattens the creak, a mother and her daughter stand along the banks near their home awaiting the arrival of a loved one.  Is it a father?  a brother?  Perhaps a far-away friend.  The emotion is evident as you take in Robert Duncan’s efforts on “Anticipation”.

farms are for kid

“Farms Are for Kids”

A farm is a great place for a kid to grow up.  The wonders!  Between the animals, the open fields, and the friends, there is so much to occupy young ones.  The lessons learned will stick for a lifetime and the memories will be fond.  On this sunny afternoon, Robert Duncan has three kids with their boots on, tromping down to the creek along with several of the cows.  Their next adventure lies just beyond that hill.

grandpas milk cow

“Grandpa’s Milk Cow”

Grandparents have a special bond with their grandchildren, and in “Grandpa’s Milk Cow”, Robert Duncan imagines how that might look on a family farm.  It’s winter outside, but warm in the barn, where, under the watch of two cats, grandpa milks his favorite cow.  His young grandson is curious, and perhaps might get his first lesson on how to milk.  This is an especially tender piece, full of warmth, promise, and love.

playing with giants

“Playing with Giants”

Fresh snow is one of the best playthings a child could ask for.  All you need is a jacket and some boots and your set.  Of course, the addition of some friends, a sled, and a few barnyard animals can make things even more enjoyable.  Robert Duncan leaves the ultimate destination up to the viewer, but it’s clear just from the journey that these little ones are about to have loads of fun.

  1. Dear Mr. Duncan,

    I teach Principles of Perspective Drawing to 6th grade students.
    I used your painting as an exercise for the students to determine the viewers eye level, using the principle of receding lines.
    It’s enjoyable to watch them light up as they learn how to do it.
    I am currently writing a book based on my course, for middle school students.
    I would appreciate using your painting in my book for the same purpose.
    I would be pleased to credit you according to your requirements.

    Very truly yours,

    James Bowen.
