"Modeling"

It's an unofficial rooster week! I was asked if I actually have my own roosters/chickens...but alas no...I've heard too many stories of vicious attack roosters, rats because of the feed and then the neighbors would probably not like the early wake-up calls either! So I resign myself to visiting farms and taking tons of pics!

For some reason this little cutie reminds me of a Golden Girls episode in which Rose acted as Henny Penny in a play. I can still see her walking hen like! Well done, Annelein1

I really like this one. I am not a professional artist, but like to dabble in it on the side. I may have to try a rooster or two this summer.

Love the "weightiness" (is that a word?) of the foot and head, and the light, feathery tail that just touches the edge of the frame!

Thanks for answering my question. I find that sometimes working from photos kinda puts a staleness to my work and yours doesn't have that, so thats why I asked. I agree about the heaviness of the feet compared to the whisper lightness of those beautiful white feathers. I bet this one is person is very stunning.
peace n abundance,
