Had the urge to get some stunning poultry photos yesterday and these 3 lovelies are what I found!
What do you think? A pure white hen scratching for corn, a pheasant looking like he’s on the run and a sophisticated and proud cockerel that I am dying to paint.
But – first things first. I drew the cockerel on a large A3 pad with a 3B pencil.
A little bit stiff this first attempt but I just had to get it out of my system late last night after I had bought and downloaded the image. I love his splayed feet and crazy tail feathers.
I will draw him again when I am calmer and pay more attention to his flamboyant plumage. I love the gesture of the white hen as she inclines her head downwards so unaware of the viewer – just going about her business…Watch this space for more drawings and some paintings.
Anyone else mad on chickens?
