Kiki the Chicken

Oil on linen on panel, 6 x 6 inches --

Here's what I worked on this weekend. This is the final version of a chicken painting I did several months ago. It's a portrait of out lap chicken, Kiki (Barred Rock hen). There were some minor sections in her face that I didn't like, and those were bothering me for all this time. So here's her makeover. Her eye is more refined.I shaped up her face line a little bit. I also made her comb smaller, yet still running off the top of the canvas, instead of kissing the edge. I think she looks more sophisticated. On the right is the earlier version.
