Thanks for the great photos, Maureen! :clap: And thanks for the rooster. Love painting them.
This is oil on a 7x5 canvas panel.
I came across this quote by John Singer Sargent: "No small dabs of colour - you want plenty of paint to paint with."
I have been guilty of being stingy with paint...so this time my mounds of color were a little more generous. But most of the areas around the bird were done with thin paint for contrast.
C&C welcome. Thanks for looking and commenting! :)
Done , slightly less than 2 hrs.

A regal rooster for sure! Well done, Dean!

He's very smart! Real character!
I like the quote too - it definitely applies to me and I'll make a note of it! thank you :D
I'll show this 'King o' the Walk' to Howard (idylbrush) I know he'll like it.:D

Oh Deano, he is really impressive! Excellent texture of light colored feathers.
Love the glow.. super job.

Looks like a brilliant sunrise coming up behind him and he is ready to crow about it! He really stands out with your generous paint of his plumage - so cool!

It shows that you like painting rosters .
I love how you have made him stand out.Great feathers and lovely warm colours. The little flecks of colour on his chest are very effective.

I like the choice of colors and how you shared them between the background and the bird. I also really like your bold strokes and use of paint, delish! Superb, I wouldn't change a thing.
