Baby Minie

6 x 6 in, oil on linen on panel -- SOLD

Minie is another baby chick our friends got this spring. She is a sister of baby Moe which I painted before. Minie is now a beautiful Ameraucana hen, and she has been laying blue/green-ish eggs starting this Fall. Apparently for a while she was laying eggs somewhere very well hidden in the yard. And the owners will be hunting for the Easter eggs...

In order to get the realistic colors, first I laid out the composition based on a photo, then I added the color and texture while holding the chick in my left hand.
