Animals, The Chicken by Joan Tavolott

Last year my plein air group painted at the Andrews Family Farm Stand in Wading River, NY several times. We were mostly painting the farmstand and its bounty, but you went around back there was a fenced area with a chicken coop and a few chickes. This one posed for a photo for me and I turned it into a little sketch. I used my water-soluble graphite pencil and my Inktense pencils for this.

  1. Such a lovely chicken! I'd love to have chickens but I know it is a lot of work. Did you know chickens are the latest IT pet??? These are pretty fancy: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/25/silkie-chicken_n_5200292.html Thanks for commenting on my artwork. Happy PPF

  2. Your chicken is so lovely, Joan! I love chickens and would have some myself. It would need rather much investments first.

  5. Hubby and I raised chickens many moons ago. So this locks like one of ours. I liked the chickens as we had fresh eggs. Only the fox and the skunks were bothersome gritters back than. Mrs Skunk somehow got in and took an egg. Then she or he would roll the egg one by one across the drive way under the fence to an old barn she had occupied. So you don' t shush a skunk away. You stay your distance.

    I like you picture well done.

  7. Many thanks everyone!!! I've never raised chicken, but we did stay at a friend's ranch in Texas who raised them. I don't know if I really liked the sound of the rooster in the morning. The first time it was cute, and then it was annoying. lol The fresh eggs would probably make it worth it.
