Day 761 -Chickens

I do LOVE to draw chickens. I thought these were barred rocks but now I am not sure.

 Whatever they are they are definitely adorable plump birds. There were strutting around the farmstead at Oconaluftee hunting for bugs and worms. 

I hear they are a must for organic gardeners who use them instead of pesticides. 


Before I splattered the chickens. The background is painted with cerulean, quin gold and quin sienna. I used the same mix to splatter them. 

The birds are painted with – you guessed it!! Ted Nuttalls transparent palette and cerulean and indigo. 

Thanks for reading!!
