Crimson Crown Rooster

9"x12" Waterolor
Last 6-7 days have not been good to me... had a sore throat with a lot of coughing and hardly any sleep at night.With this the old cough has returned,it seems.The specialist's appointment is still a good month away.So all I can do is drink a lot of honey-lemon-water/tea. But painting always takes a hit when I am not feeling 100% well.Did not paint at all for last whole week- this morning I decided to break the dry spell by painting some loose pieces.This rooster is the only one who made it to my blog post! 
The focus was his crown so I kept the background and even the feathers at minimum with some salt texture thrown in.What do you think?
