New Cockerel Collection 2012

The Beady Eye!
A new cockerel gradually comes to life in a watercolour for one of my exhibitions this year

I knew it. It seems like ages since I painted a cockerel. I even considered that I might be " cockereled out"! 

But no.

This afternoon I couldn't resist the huge draw to my red shades and a comb started to form, next came the eye which I worked on for some time as I was so pleased with its' shiny little form. This cockerel seems to have great character and personality so I am going to love adding  his beak and feathers!

I always feel great when I paint these guys!
