Good morning! the sun is finally shining in Birmingham.
This is a 12" x 24" monotone oil painting. It has a very different feel than most of my rooster paintings. I typically use very bright colors. I like the serene feeling this one has. I doubt roosters are deep thinkers but that is what I named this painting. "Where can I find the juiciest worms?" "Does that hen still think I am handsome?" "Can I out run that coyote?" Who knows?
My goal was to only use different strengths of transparent red oxide. I ended up adding a little burnt umber for the darkest values and a bit of naples for the lightest.
