Leo and Coco

Oil on linen on panel, 6 x 6 in. -- Click Here to Bid

This is a painting of my hen and rooster when they were a couple of months old. Leo already had a nice pink comb and wattles like a young rooster. This was based on a photo I took in my studio. I had a hard time dealing with the background. I abstracted the background as mach as possible while maintaining the value relations with the chicks. My favorite parts are the bold orange and yellow high lights on their neck lines with thick paints.
