Turkey Trot

Close ups

Oil on 5x7 hardboard.

Here's my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. The photo was provided by Gail.

I first covered the board with black gesso. Love that stuff!

I recall doing this same ref on April 25, 2008. I also believe it was when Gail was hosting. So, I thought I might do better the second time around. Don't know if I did but it was fun doing this one again.

With Thanksgiving a short time away I imagined these wise birds as doing some training in jogging and evasive tactics.
