White feathers

"Leghorn" 15" x 11" Private Collection
I'll round out the week with another rooster
painting. A while ago I did a white poppy and
got some comments about white flowers, which
are not easy to paint...well the same goes for white
roosters! It's amazing how much the background
comes in to play and in order to define the white
feathers you actually have to use some color.
It always boils down to color favorite thing!

Beautiful--you capture the feathers so well. And the red in the coxcomb(?) is delicious!
