The great chicken dilemma....

I've recently been trying to convince my wife of my genius surrounding my chicken dreams. You can read about my attempts on my writing site. I did this painting tonight after being thwarted.

Chickens are amongst my favourite animals, and your painting of this fellow is simply great. Love the colours!

Chickens rock! ...and this one is no exception.....

Sandi said...

Can you tell me what supplies you are using please? ...pens, paper, paint?

Thanks everyone for the comments!! I'm happy that you are enjoying what's coming out of my pens.
To answer Sandi, this drawing was done in my watercolor moleskine. I used noodlers ink in a fountain pen first to sketch out what I wanted to draw, then I used watercolor paint to finish. I hope that answers the question.

Brilliant sketch...

Sandi said...

That indeed answers the question...one more little one....did you have a special nib in the fountain pen? Again, I really love your piece/work and thanks for taking the time with me.

The nib wasn't an abnormal one. It is a fine tipped fountain pen, a Waterman. I bought the pen a few years ago and it has been working out great with the use of the Noodler's Ink.
