Rooster Painting Details

This colorful and abstract rooster painting depicts a portrait style composition painted with a mixed media combination of heavy-body acrylics and ink on archival paper. I also used the tip ( not the brush end ) to scribe into the thick wet paint. this is one of my go to techniques when I feel the edges are too soft and need that extra little punch to distinguish the shape.

Artist Notes

My focus was to create that feathered look that roosters have. Texture is always welcome since it gives the viewer something they can sink their teeth into. Whenever I'm creating art I try to balance abstract and representational qualities so that neither one dominates too much. Some subjects do tend to be more abstract than others but I still keep the balance in mind as I go.
