I thoroughly enjoy painting roosters and chickens and almost always paint one or two for this challenge. This is from a photo reference I took in Kentucky at a friend's house when I stopped in unannounced and she was not home. I gathered black walnuts from the trees lining the road to her drive, snapped some photos and went on my merry way. :)
I love the vibrant colors and particularly the posture of these fowl. That strutting walk and thrust out chest with tail feathers high just inspire me and I hope I never get tired of painting them! Who can resist? Not I!
