After working on the color sketch I decided to make this guys tail feathers a little larger by about 10%. I have also decided to go with colors for his plumage closer to those of the original photo which are more teal than winsor. He is the first in a series of four Roosters. I was inspired to paint roosters after admiring the work of Annelein of Watercolors.
We are off to the beach for a few days and I will post progress when I return. Have a great week!
