acrylic on wrapped canvas
This is Roopert, who lives on the Critter Farm in Oregon.
I think he is a
Barred Rock or Plymouth I have been corrected - silver-laced Wyandotte! (I know nothing about chickens except I would like to know more and have some.)
I usually don't have this much fun with acrylic..it dries too fast and eventually I wish I had used oil paint instead...but not today!
I appreciated the quick drying time. (And a rockin' photo always inspires me.)
This is the '3rd canvas' to come across the easel in several days and the '1st one' in three, to make it off the easel and in front of the camera lens.
This guy is so handsome, he would make a great main character in a children's book. Roosters often have an interesting life. They manage the hens and strut around looking (and sometimes being) tough. I think this guy is just as handsome as they get!
