Art Demo – white chicken in watercolour

Finally! Walked dog, done washing, cleaned kitchen and had lunch. What a marathon. Now I can sit down to paint.
Here is my earlier post about a white chicken’s head that I painted in watercolour.

Today I am starting afresh with a new chicken and am going to have a bash at painting her. I am pleased with the drawing which took me ages as I had trouble getting her pose just right. I really wanted to show her angle compared to the ground which is what appeals to me about her as she pecks for food.

Here are my basic steps so far.

But before I start – a quick clean up job on my trusty Frank Webb palette is needed. If you use tube paint I cannot recommend this palette enough.
I’ve had mine for over 20 years! Come back for more progress on this hen when you have a mo!

  1. Your work is lovely, I will definitely return to see how your hen is progressing. The way you show the process of your watercolors is so very intersting, I couldn’t stop going through your posts. Thank you for your kind comment on my blog. 😉

    1. Hi Annamaria – I am so pleased that you enjoyed looking at how I paint – that’s the whole point of me doing these demos – it’s fun to see the process of others isn’t it? Do you ever do step by steps? Thanks for the lovely compliments too 😉
