Colorful Rooster Painting Details

This colorful original rooster painting features an eye-popping palette of teals, greens, browns and reds. Has a 'chunky' style thanks to the large organic shaped blocks of color. It was painted with heavy body acrylics on archival paper, measures 17" x 15" and titled 'Chunky'. The painting would be perfect for the kitchen or dining room area if you appreciate unique rooster artwork.

Artist Notes

As with many of my works I started this rooster with a reject painting. However, I decided to not water down my paint and use it undiluted. I did dip my brush into clean water in-between changing colors, but I didn't water down the paints. This is the reason why it has all the lovely texture. I typically thin my paints with water because I like to mix opaque and transparent layers in most of my works. But I thought it would be interesting to try something different, so I did! The results were exactly what I had envisioned. A thick, rich and colorful painting that looks like a relief map.

That about covers it for now. Thanks for stopping by and please share the goods with your family, friends and fellow artists. Toodles...
