This piece was done during a portrait session yesterday...there is a local group that meets once or twice a week to paint from the model...I've been lacking in my participation of late, but want to step up my commitment to join in...I need the practice! Plus the camaraderie is great fun as well!

Just us three chickens around the water basin...nothing to see here!...this reference photo came about quite by chance...driving by a farm later in the day and I spotted a few feathered friends scurrying back to their roost...well...it's a quick push on the brakes...find the farmer and ask permission to "shoot" his chickens! Et voila! Fodder for future paintings...how do you all gather up your reference material?

I've found a new interest...exploring acrylics! Yup...I've thrown that medium into the mix as well as watermixable oils and of course I can't abandon my watercolors....so my studio has been turned upside down and there are tubes, jars, bottles, canvas, paper, palettes, brushes, mediums etc...everywhere! The hard part each day is deciding which type of product will get to come out and play...🎨
