SHARON'S CHALLENGE ROOSTER

Thank you Sharon for another first for me. This month's challenge a Rooster's head is not something I would pick at all, but what a good excuse to use reds.  These challenges of yours are really taking me out of my comfort zone and anyone reading this who is stuck in a rut, should give it a whirl, like I have.  Bit of a battle but stretching the brain as well as the watercolour control.  I never do anything twice, so this will have to do....

  4. Wow Polly love this, particularly the eye and the beak. You have done well if this is out of your comfort zone. I have never painted Cockerels either and may still have time to give it a go

  5. You did great! I like alot the dotted lines in the feathers, and the perfectly done reflection in the eye. Did you do the dotted lines with a sharp knife?

  8. Polly - looks to me that getting out of your comfort zone is working excellently. You certainly would not need to redo your rooster...I think you caught him quite well. Thanks for sharing. Hope you have a great week-end.
