Duckish, to me, is a term that means
sort of the last light of the day. The fading into evening. Twilight. It’s not dark yet but it is definitely not light out. I’m not sure where the word came from but I would imagine it came from darkish – because that’s exactly what
duckish is. It’s dark-ish. When I think of duckish, I think of summer evenings typically. Because that sort of transition into night is a little slower. Sort of takes its time. You get that really, really, pretty pink light and just the tail end of that as it gets gets into evening and the sky turns that nice, deep, dark, rich blue colour.
