Day 12 Rooster Power

Day 12 Rooster Power

I don't really know why I like painting chickens,
because I'm afraid of them.
This guy was so fun to paint.

I got the photograph from my go to website
Paint My

Gary Jones is the photographer
and you can click here to go to his blog.
What he posted on can be used to paint from,
but I'm pretty sure he doesn't want anyone doing that from his fabulous
photos on his blog.

give my rooster and him a look if you can.

  1. Nice pick, Sharon. Did you use a knife???

    1. Yes, I did it with a knife. Paint is very thick and it took for ever to dry, like you said with your painting last week. This was almost like spreading butter.

    2. I loved it, particularly for this rooster. I haven't used a knife in quite a while.

  2. Love the color harmony and action strokes in your painting!

    1. Thanks Jacklyn. Last year during the first challenge was the first chicken I'd ever painted. I've painted one in each challenge since. This time I did it with a knife.

  3. I am so impressed that you used a painting knife for this. it's very well done and the colors look really nice together.

    1. Thanks Fay. I haven't used a knife for quite a while but this rooster just seemed to need the knife. The feathers were really fun. I didn't know if I could get that comb done well with the knife, but it just worked. Love it when a plan comes together. hehe
