Last evening I painted some roosters.This fella made it here, others will have to await their turns.
Somehow going loose seems to be the best way to represent roosters! I tried tighter but it did not look as good...or may be not to me!I love this unbridled style though I am yet not good enough to be able to apply it to every subject-- so until I practice a LOT more, it works just for roosters and rabbits.
It does resembles a lot to the roosters of UK artist Jean Haines. I love her paintings.But I wouldn't want to be accused of copying -- this kind of thing just flows out of my brush!Can a style be a copyright?
I am still contemplating the qualities of 'looseness' verses 'accuracy'...
Have a good day!
