Rooster gets blue


Had another fun Saturday adding some blue feathers to my little friend here. I'll let that dry a bit and then add more detail in the blue feathers so you can tell the lighter colored feathers sit on top. then for the background. I usually leave that for last. This one I'll be using for some decorative images, as well as selling the original and prints, so I may scan it in after the feathers are done and before I add the background. Much less to delete in Photoshop! I'll let the white help me timewise.

I never really thought I'd be painting a rooster! It's surprising even me. Enjoy! I may have to do more.

Wow... I never expected that! What a refreshing color on a rooster, perfect combination Revelle!

Revelle said...

Alex, lots of the roosters have this royal blue or emerald green on their chest and tails. I was quite amazed myself!

He is fantastic! I thought you usually did your birds in colored pencil...? What media are you using for this one?

Revelle said...

Janene, this one is in oil paint. I needed a break from the pencils for a while. Glad you like him! Oils are so much fun! But messy to keep set up. I'm turning a second room into another studio so I can do that. My other studio is full if computers and printers etc.
