I wanted this mixed media collage/ painting to reflect the lovely colours of the Blue Orpington cockerel. I think he'd look great on any kitchen wall.
I start the canvas with a rough pencil sketch and then I add the coloured paper before building up the layers with acrylic paint. The last thing I add are the embellishments of thread, beads, buttons and glitter to pick out or highlight certain areas.
