Thanks for the great photos, Maureen!
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.
