Bright garden hens
I'm also experimenting with a high key palette again!
This is another large (20" x 20") canvas, and my subject matter for this is a small pen sketch that I made several years ago, when we had a very large garden and a little flock of hens. It's very liberating to work from a sketch with no colour, as I really want to get away from the naturalistic colours of objects and use a more emotional approach. It's all a bit of a leap into the unknown, colour wise! As it stands tonight I've no idea how I take it forward from here, but find it extremely exciting none-the-less!
