Oil on Canvas
Yesterday I spent some time down at Goggs Mill Lane where the chickens and poultry live. There is a young Cockerel there who is a real character. Bundles of energy and very noisey he spends the day sending chickens and ducks fleeing is all directions.
He is cocky.
The rest of the day I spent working on studies and compositions of him. It was difficult to get him on the 18x14cm stretched linen format so I’ve gone bigger on this occasion in order to accommodate him (but kept the Paintathon price of £75 nonetheless).
Maybe I should have called him Jose following the news that Jose Mourinho has become the new head coach of Tottenham Hotspur whose Motif is a cockerel – and of course he is also Cocky
