The Chicken Challenge
I painted this lovely white hen as part of a Daily PaintWorks challenge a while back and just realized I never actually submitted it! Well, here it is. I wish I could tell you something about this chicken, but I've never met her–just grabbed the photo and started painting. I do love painting chickens, particularly their faces–people will say that chickens don't actually have expressions, but I think you get quite a sense of a chicken's personality from their faces. This one seems to know that she's quite beautiful.
Actually, I would say that most chickens have quite a high opinion of themselves. It's one of the things I like about them.
You know the drill–
