Day 388 and then there were more chickens!!!

  
Key West Post office chickens. $150 app 8x 40″ 

 Sorry about the cropping. My iPhone refused to let me crop it closer. 

  These were drawn at the post office while I sat on the steps of a lawyers office. The chicks got really friendly. But the two roosters were vigilant as usual!  

  

I tried to paint them loosely with a large paint brush a #12 Cheap Joes Legend. 

  
I also tried to let the colors blend on the page unless I did some negative painting. When I do negative painting I usually paint the light color and let it dry. Then I add the darker colors. 

Colors used burnt sienna and Quin gold. Cad red and vermilion for the comb. Inathradone blue and viridian green for the tails. Burnt umber added to make a black. 

The chicks were painted with Winsor yellow Quin gold burnt sienna and burnt umber.  

A dab of white gel pen on the eyes for sparkle. 

I splattered its with Inathradone and burnt umber. 

Thanks for reading.

Day 387 – too many chickens

  
I may be growing tired of painting Key West chickens. I painted quite a few today. All of them were painted wet on wet. 

Thought we all needed a joke on Thursday. This is actually one of the court house chickens I drew while walking around one afternoon. There are more courthouse and post office chickens and wild life center chickens. Too many chickens lol. 

  
Here’s another court house chicken who was near a homeless guy who was laying in the sidewalk on Whitehead enjoyingy the shade of  a palm tree. 

The Palm was first painted Winsor yellow then green apatite and finally cobalt with dabs of cad red.

The chickens are painted with Quin red orange Quin gold Quin red Inathridone blue and viridian green. 

Thanks for reading. 

Better paintings tomorrow nite.
