Thankful (Happy Thanksgiving)




Oil on a 7X5 hardboard. To quote my chicken: " I'm thankful I ain't a turkey!" Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

This is my contribution to the WDE at Wet Canvas. The reference photo was graciously provided by Gail.

I reverted back to my favorite thing...pre toning the board with red acrylic. I like how it peeks through and activates the painting. Hope you all like it!

  7. Your brushstrokes are excellent! I love how you've suggested the feathers and grass with the directionality and width of the strokes. The red peaking thru helps the bird to pop and the greens to glow. Hmmm... suddenly I'm thinking chicken might be a good main course while I watch Dallas play football this upcoming thursday... not sure why... ;-)

    Have a great Thanksgiving!

  8. Great painting Dean - when you'd written 'Happy Thanksgiving' in your title, I thought, oh no, that chicken's for the chop. I'm so glad he's not! Hope you and all my American friends have a great Thanksgiving.

  13. Happy Thanksgiving Deano and God's blessings on you and yours. Love your chicken. I look at our chickens and think..."hmmm, wonder if they would make a good subject for a painting." Here proves they do. I love your brushwork and your painterly style on this piece.

  16. I love under painting. It really adds a dimension to the final work by setting off the colors over it.
