Jean Haines paint so many of them and I used to think, what's so special about these cockerels? But painting one myself was a revelation! I did this one and then went on to paint another set immediately afterwards....there's something about them-I loved splashing color all around ( In case you are squinting to find some here,wait for my next post!)
BTW, I took this one after a photo of Sandy, another blogger friend. But for the second, I didn't need a reference.I guess that's what I loved about this subject!
