I love the colours of both the cockerel and hens in this canvas. As always I'm inspired by my own hens for these paintings.
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.
