A fun day in Kauai, Hawaii.
As you travel along the Waimea Canyon there are parking lots filled with roosters and chickens.
This particular rooster had a white head. I am sure many visitors have seen this rooster it is very striking.
This piece was painted with a direct wash using a round sable brush.
Care must be taken in varying value and color for interest.
Shapes are repeated and varied through out the design.
When painting yellow use a nice mix of violet to lower the chroma,
this way you will not make the color go green or yellow orange.
Blues in the towels are a variety of Cobalt Blue, Ultra Marine Blue, Cerulean and Cobalt Turquoise. Be sure to make one of the blue hues dominate.
A fun painting.
