Bright garden hens

I think my computer has completely given up on life, so I'm experimenting with posting from my iPad again, let's hope the writing and image go together this time!
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!
