View Full Version : Roosters - I'll give you roosters....

11-29-2009, 12:48 PM
Just figured if these guys are just pecking around someone needs to put them onto the paper and get them to work.

The "Floating" roosters will be anchored at some point.

Do you like the re-worked Wallis paper as a background? I do...

C&C always appreciated.

I hate double posting pieces... they seem to just take away from the solo piece.... and yet I do it! :)

Fantastic!!! And yes, the recycled background is a happy accident that works well!

hmmmm .... I think I like the first one, as is. A simple statement, but very strong!

LOL ... I am working on a big piece of Wallis, board mounted, that has a figure behind the underpainting. I wonder if she will be peeking out from under the waterfall?

These are fantastic:thumbsup: The colors you have used make the feathers shine. Nothing foul about these paintings. Sorry, couldn't resist. They are wonderful.

Can we ever have too many rooster or pear paintings? No! These are so nice, Barb, and I love the recycled backgrounds. It's like a little bit of abstraction going on behind the roosters - very intriguing!

Nice I like them both, I think the other one is having flash backs, lol about floating. sorry I couldn't help myself.

Thanks everyone.

Oh good one Scotty.

Never too many farm animals and fruit for my taste...

Well, I'm sorry that you have to listen to crowing roosters Dan, but here in the city they are disallowed so I rely on the rest of you for photos.

Let's see what works.... it was fun to paint them. Barb

:clap: :clap: Just love your roosters!! My son has brought home some mexican fighting chickens, and over the summer one hen had eggs and hatched them----she has mostly little roosters and boy now as they are getting older they sure do fight!! Then they all get together and eat---they are so funny, and so tuff. Maybe I will try some, but never as good and artistically done as yours-----Love the backgrounds also.

Fabulous roosters, Barb - just gotta love'em! The backgrounds do work....

11-30-2009, 02:59 PM
I like them both too, but the second one is my favorite. I prefer the cool colors in this case. Very well done.

Thanks - the backgrounds are neutral so they hold some power I guess. It's funny how you re=learn things.

Wow I like the colors of the second one

Thanks Robert... it was fun to build it up. B

Hey Cockadoodle Noonan!!
These are very nice, love the colors and the loose background especially on the second one. Don't anchor those roosters....they will drown!!
OK...maybe a cast shadow.

Barb! you know i love chickens! I really like the 2nd one the background gives some interest to it without taking over.

12-01-2009, 12:49 PM
Love the electric blue! What is it with chicks that makes them so enticing? (Comment would have been fun had I been a man, sorry for being a woman.)

Now, just a little less feathers, put in a pot with onions and some red wine... Mmmmm!

Love them!

Thanks - I may have to scatter some feed at their feet so they have something to enjoy under glass.

Sick... Charlie... that's sick... Ok - it's funny...LOL
