Retro Rooster


10 x 14.75 mixed media collage (watercolor, acrylics, newspaper, napkins, catalog pages, ink) I composed over a failed geranium watercolor. The rooster head and neck were from a former failed barnyard painting with him and two hens that did not quite work. His purple legs just kill me; feathers in front are from newspaper photos of old wood. It is a conglomeration of elements with a whole lot of country style and was fun to make
C&C welcome

Re: Retro Rooster

What I enjoy is that the picture isn't uptight. The rooster is..but the rest isn't; an interplay which is entertaining. The newspaper works incredibly successfully.... Flurry and flutter....lots of cackling, just like the news.

Overall as a piece it works in colour composition and wonderful line quality.
