Step by Step of an Oil Painting of My Three Chickens

Today I painted in oil on a 12" x 12" canvas. Here are the results.
First a sketch-in with a transparent orange/burnt sienna..

squinting down and adding the darkest darks..

time for some 'midtones'..

adding more of the 'local color'...


zeroing in on the detail but staying loose...

"Flock of the Day"

12" x 12"
wrapped canvas
painted from my own photo, a few posts back...
My recently acquired iPad helped on the quick photos..now all I have to do is figure out how to do a slideshow to upload from there to my blog...hmmm.  Anyone do this??

Thanks Tracy! It was fun to focus on those steps with photography! It also reminds me to KISS...that old method that I am working on these days, in all parts of my life.
