woyww - Beady eyed poultry

A birds eye view of my desk with 2 beady eyed friends painted in the journal I was binding a couple of weeks ago.




Let me introduce Rudi.
 As we don't have chickens in the backyard I use Google and waste time selecting an image that has a little personality.    While painting I could just imagine Rudi strutting around the hen house trying to impress silly chicks like Mabel.  
Mabel is a good example of when I fiddle with the watercolour and get grey muddy sections rather than clear colours.    But all fun .....as I can just turn the page and start another picture.
Planning a slow peak at many woyww over the weekend.
Thanks for visiting.

  2. I'm a bit wary of chickens, but yours look great! You've especially captured Rudi's very life like expression and beady eye.
    Friday should be fine for lunch, just let me know which one/s suit.

  3. Thanks for visiting Sandra. You always beat me to it. I suppose you always will because I go to the gym on Wed morning. Now I'm back and I've been looking at those cute chickens. Yes you chose well, they do have a bit of personality. Beautifully done.
    Have a great week,

  5. Those watercolours are A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!! Honestly Sandra, you've got the knack of painting with what is, I think, a really tricky medium to get right. Rudi is fantastic....truly Cock of the Walk :-)

  15. Your watercolour paintings are really getting amazingly good! It's something I would like to explore one day as well! First, however, I have to get my other passions out of the way!

  18. Love your chickens, dad had a chicken for years we called her Eggbert gosh she was a good layer it used to just roam the property free and when he went away she would come to our house and sleep at the back door off the kitchen. Eggbert would tap, tap, tap on the window when we were in there and we would tap back at her it was hilarious. Rudi is a little bit like her, so I like this one the most, but the colours in Mabel are really great, love it. Thanks for visiting, have a great week crafting.
