WDE Jan 10- Struttin' His Stuff

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.

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!

Re: WDE Jan 10- Struttin' His Stuff

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.
