Chicken – Daily Painting

November 21st, 2006

Study of a chicken … 5″ x 6″ – gouache on recycled paper

I thought the recycled paper worked well for this. In fact, the little bits of fiber in the paper reminded me of the sort of straw and dust found in barnyard environments and gave me a nice midtone to work against.

  4. Perfect poultry portrait! Great paper for it too. You seem to be able to move from one medium to another so gracefully!

  10. Wow — I really thought it was pastel pencil until I read otherwise! Great personality on this guy. (Maybe he’s just self-confident because it’s Thanksgiving week, and somebody else’s turn!)

  12. This is sooooooooooooo good Karen – you make me want to break out my gouache paints!

  13. Looks great on that paper. Some birds scare me – maybe goes back being chased by a whole flock of geese or turkeys or something. One of my best paints was of two very colourful roosters – I sold it to friends and their house burnt down – with the roosters picture – in the Ash Wednesday burshfire at Lorne.
    It was based on a beautiful rooster we had when living in Fiji and one day someone killed him and cooked him. I refused to partake. He had been so beautiful.
