Chickens and Grapes

November 18, 2008

A friend asked me to work on a painting for someone incorporating chickens and a vineyard.  Hmmmm…. Here are a couple of preliminary sketches.

    Nothing like a nice chardonnay grape with some roasted chicken. Excellent sketches. Can’t wait to see the finished product!

    Oh, Look at those happy colors. I’ve been thinking of you and this dilemma of doing quick sketches vs. lengthier, carefully worked drawings. I’ve been going through the same thing myself over the past couple of years. I rarely seem to be able to devote time to developing a careful drawing anymore. Mostly the reason is that there are only so many hours in a day and I’m devoting what I can to watercolor. That being said, it is such a delight to see these happy studies with your vibrant colorings. I love your work!

    Oh, those chickens! I use to watch them so much on our farm–
    their beady little eyes glinting at goodies and their combs
    so floppy in contrast to their stiff, Charlie Chaplin walk.
    You have caught it all and I have to smile.
