Shirley Bond - "Running Rooster"

Artist: Shirley Bond
Title: Running Rooster
Watercolor on watercolor paper 8"x8"
Artist Comments:
For a change I started painting at the brightest color I could see, the red comb and then worked from there.
Found the tail feather a challenge in getting the pattern correct and also the background.
I find I tend to overdo the background in watercolor paintings.
An interesting study to do.

A great study it is! I find backgrounds hard too, and I think you did a great job!

Turned out well Shirley, I hate backgrounds, hard to find the perfect mix of enought but not too much.
