6x8 ink sketch done in under 10 minutes just now of the hen that I have made look worried sick :eek: It is on Stillman & Birn Zeta series sketchbook using FC Pitt pen XS, black ink. Tomorrow I'll add watercolor and/or gouache :rolleyes:
C&C welcome :thumbsup:
Great start Kay. Love the expression on the chicken. :lol:

Great start, Kay, and I like that chicken's worried expression. After all, minding chicks can be worrying! Looking forward to the color!

She's beautiful - she's like "oh, all these KIDS!" :lol: I love pen sketches, they are so alive and full of movement. Excellent job! I look forward to the completion.

One more hour approximately today with gouache, wc, and white gel pen added...could not alter her expression :crying:

Beautiful, Kay! I think she's looks less worried and more curious now. I love the rich colors.

Thanks Holly, Helen, Christine, and Susan! Love doing chickens or cows as it is easy to put facial expressions on them, comical or otherwise.

Kayak, she's adorable! Not worried about her chicks anymore, there they are looking all soft and fuzzy. Beautiful painting!

Nice colours. You've caught her in one of those "I've had it up to here with you kids!" moments.
