Who Goes There?

14 x 11 oil on panel SOLD
This rooster is a resident at Boggy Creek Farm. He was strutting around slowly as roosters do, letting everyone know he was the shiznit. I decided he needed painting for the Daily Paintworks Challenge for this week. I got multiple photo views of him that I hope to paint. I think he is the prettiest breed of rooster, with shiny gold silky feathers that slide all over his back when he turns. In this shot he had quickly turned his head and paused, vigilant to see who dared try to pass. *None* shall pass!

bonjour Camille, oui ce coq est le maître des lieux, il ne laisse personne passé sur son territoire, tu as peint ce coq majestueusement tout comme l'expression donnée, cet 'or brillant' dont tu parles est bien là, il est superbe!
bonne journée Camille
bises cath.

This is beautiful, and after seeing your work in person, I can only imagine how much this pops.
