chickens al fresco





Fellow Wallingford artist Nancy Merrill keeps chickens, and her studio's picture window overlooks their quarters. I was privileged one day last year to spend a rainy afternoon with her, snug in her studio, drinking tea and sketching her chickens in ink on canvas. Added final watercolor and an acrylic fixative to the top one just recently!

Great shapes, Beth. As for the top one, "sign it and sell it!" :)

Love your chickens drawings. I spent some time recently doing photos studies of the turkeys at the bird feeder. I didn't think to draw them...
