Morning Alarm-Rooster

 Close ups

Oil on 7x5 canvas panel.

This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Jean was the gracious host this week who provided a bunch of great photos.

Just couldn't resist the colorful rooster! Plenty of thick paint for texture!
This was a lot of fun to paint!

C&C welcome. Thanks for looking and commenting!

  3. Hey there Dean!... You have caught that fire in that cock o' the walk's eye.... one which I well remember from mant years ago... when carrying out morning egg-gathering chores at my cousin's farm. That "look" usually was foillowed by a scurry that drove me out of the pen... without basket in hand... to the glee of my cousin. Sweet memories!

    Your rich colour... especially your wonderful use of reds further elevates the sense of alarm... danger and drama! Bravo... again Dean!

    Good Painting!
    Warst regards,
    Bruce

  4. Love your painting - so bright and stunning! Remember a rooster we used to have, feisty as all get out and would not let the grandkids in to gather eggs. He just strutted around as though he was the king of the roost, which he really was.

      Yep, roosters can be pretty dominant critters on their turf!
