Rooster Painting On Canvas
About The Rooster Art
This original rooster painting on canvas is painted with a variety of mixed media techniques, a plenty of patience. Loaded with abstract qualities but plenty of representational features as well. It's created with lively brushwork and a sense of fearlessness by artist Robert Joyner.
I created this piece after I had painted several smaller rooster paintings on paper. My energy and confidence were both high so the timing was perfect to immortalize this rooster on canvas. This isn't a surface that I'm always comfortable on but will occasionally give it a go when the stars line up correctly. The medium consisted of heavy body acrylics and a little ink that was added on the final layer to give some of the areas a needed 'pop' of color. It was actually headed to the reject pile because I felt the painting was muddy. But this 'pop' of color I added with the inks really changed my mind at the last minute. I added some lighter gray tones to the background and just like that a winner is born.
