"Royal Rooster" by Lori Sutphin - Watercolor

Original Watercolor Matted and Framed (paper)

Frame size: 17 1/2" X 21 1/2" 

"I love chickens and this happens to be "Bernie" one of my own. He's no longer with me but he was so cool. I could hold him, he followed me around the yard and was quite the dominant one in the flock. I love bright colors and always loved his coloring. The teal colors would pop from his dark blue feathers in the sunlight. What can I say? He was a cool dude! The background, I especially like. It's a technique using salt to create texture. And you never really know what you'll end up with but it really worked here."
