Mister Rooster - Sold

Mister Rooster
Commission - SOLD
30" x 30" Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas
This contemporary rooster was a commission for a Dallas collector who asked me to paint a colorful rooster.  It was fun working with him, choosing the color palette, the canvas size, the subject matter...creating just the right was a Christmas gift to his wife.  Mister Rooster has color, texture and personality!  I know that this rooster will love his new home.  Here are a few photos of the it went through different stages.
As you can see, I started with a drawing in charcoal, then started covering the canvas with paint.  Layers and layers of paint went on with a wide brush and then the palette knife.  The palette knife allows the paint to be applied with texture and gives the painting depth.  Feathers were added giving Mister Rooster volume and a full body.  Details in the eye were important.  Touches of color implying wildflowers were put in the grass.  Thanks for looking at this blog and the art posted.
