Struttin' His Stuff-Rooster

 Close ups

This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Maureen did a great job of hosting this week and provided a bunch of terrific photos! She always does.

I came across this quote by John Singer Sargent: "No small dabs of colour - you want plenty of paint to paint with."
I have been guilty of being stingy with this time my mounds of color were a little more generous. But most of the areas around the bird were done with thin paint for contrast.

C&C welcome. Thanks for looking and commenting!

  1. A beautiful and colorful rooster, Dean! Wonderful work as always!!!

  2. No surprise this guy is strutting his stuff. He's a handsome one alright!

  3. Gorgeous...I like the extra paint!

  4. You are wonderful with color and movement. Nothing is ever stiff - beautiful fluid strokes and color vibrations make for an exciting surface. Always a pleasure to visit, Dean, and see the variety of subject matter - done so well.

  5. oooo I love the generous paint..not to mention the wonderful COLOR!

  6. Dean - such a gorgeous rooster. You certainly captured his personality as well.

  7. I have not visited for a long time Dean, these images are just magical! Rae
