 Something a little different here, last year I painted some goats I rather liked, (posted one of them at the bottom here). I wanted to do a painting in a similar style, so I worked up these chickens, well mostly roosters.

I think it's quite a succesfful painting though quite a departure stylisticyally from what I usually do. I played with a few ideas on the background but settled on this lighter abstract effect, that balances well with the foreground.

It may be gray outside....

It may be cold and wintry outside, but here's a little spring/summer warmth to lighten the mood.

Consciously more muted and tonal colors than most of my landscapes... hey well it makes a nice change.  Love this spot, painted from reference, we're unlikely to see flowers and foliage like this at this time of year.
