I told you I am in a learning mode didn’t I!? Well, this one took me a while, but oh I had so much fun. And I learned so much.
Meet Elliot and his chicken. I found him on the internet and tracked down the photographer for permission to paint him. I painted him on a 16″ X 20″ canvas with Golden Heavy Body Acrylic. When I had most of the work finished, I switched to Golden Open Acrylic for the final bit of tints and shading on the flesh. I like the open paint for those final steps because it stays wet long enough to blend, and it’s also a little more transparent so it’s easier to apply just a little at a time.
I can’t do a pattern for this one or teach it. It is painted with permission for my personal use.
