On a Stroll

"On a stroll" 22" x 15" Fabriano Paper
Taking a leisurely stroll through the grass...
This rooster was done almost two years ago
and I love the contrast between the rusty oranges
and the inky blues. They are quite powerful birds,
just look at his puffed out chest...he's got something
to prove! I start with their combs and work my way
to their feathers..halfway through I'll put the eyes in..
that's when their personalities come into play. Those
sideways glances...not quite sure if they can trust you.
