Je suis toujours émerveillée par les couleurs des plumes des coqs... Le vôtre est particulièrement beau.
Une belle palette de couleurs qui nous enchante.

Love the softness to this rooster, Pam. Beautiful work...

Alas...I have the words "rocky mountain oysters" now going through my head. I so wish I wasn't so suggestible! LOL

Pam,
I really like your background and shadows, they compliment your painting of the chicken very well.

A beautiful rooster, Pam. I think your brushwork is very good and turned this subject into a real painting!

Wonderful colors and brushwork in this painting, Pam! I like painting roosters too! They are one of my favorite subjects.

Pam Holnback said...

Debbi, thank you! I can' wait to see your roosters!

Thank you Sylviane! The colors of this guy were just right there in front of me!

Douglas, Thank you. I was a little worried that the background was too brush strokey and was taking away from the rooster.

Thank you Marie!

Joan, thank you. Pairs sounds great!

Thank you Joy. I also love painting cows!
