On my easel......

Red Rooster after two days of painting...This canvas is extremely wet. After thick application of paint with a wide brush, I started layering the paint with a knife. The paint needs to set up before I finish the eyes and hit him with some hi-lites. I don't know if I am going to the studio today or not. If I do go, I need to let this one rest and work on something else. Have a warm and artful day.


  1. Kay, I love, love your painting. I've done some roosters but small and nothing on this scale and wow how dramatic. Now I want to paint a monster rooster.

  2. Love the way he has turned out. The way you layered the various colors is amazing. Can't wait to see how he looks finished!

  3. Thanks for the comments on the Rooster. I can't wait to work on this guy tomorrow...I need to put some final touches on this Red Monster....and name the painting. I have had several people (including my Mother) tell me that this rooster looks pretty darn mad. A mad rooster......hmmmmm.....
