Another bigger than life chicken – a boy, or rather, rooster. There are none in my own flock. Waaaay too noisy for so close to our house. But most of my chicken paintings are actually of roosters with their showy attitude. And yes, there are bluish and greenish and purplish black chickens, though perhaps none of this particular breed, which is, as one friend commented, “clothed in my imagination”.
I started out wanting to do blue, with an all over blue underpainting. I’m really enjoying glazing layers with these fluid acrylics.
