"Struttin' his stuff" 15"x17"
On this Groundhog Day we've all heard the news...it's going to be another 6 weeks of winter...boo hoo! So I thought I'd post a critter of my own. This guy casts a shadow, but there isn't anyone around to wonder about the future of the weather! My splatters and splashes work well with roosters to indicate dappled feathers. White feathers actually need a little color to make them "read" as white. I think if they were left completely as unpainted paper it wouldn't look right. Therefore a bit of cerulean and some yellow ochre.
