Rooster Painting-Trying New Things

I went to Hobby Lobby to get a few supplies to try painting with acrylics.  I have a thing for farm animals so my first painting attempt was a rooster.  I documented it all with my camera phone so the photos are not the best.

First I drew the rooster onto my canvas.


I bought the easel for $8.  It makes painting a lot easier. 

I painted my background first and then I started in on the rooster.


The trick to painting is adding layers of color. 


The layers help bring out the depth of the rooster. 


I watched Parenthood on my Kindle while I painted.  It was a great way to spend a snowy cold day.  I will definitely try it again.
