Like many artists out there, I have a studio that can basically be described as a big shed. Which can be cold and damp and even with a heater is still damp, this is not conducive to the prosperity of my lungs who harbour a condition known as IPF.
So in this recent spell of inclement weather, I have remained in the house painting and drawing with acrylics and pastels. Why chickens, I don’t know, I have always liked drawing and painting animals and this is my first go at chickens. Looking forward to summer or just warmer weather and getting on with some other pieces I have in the pipeline.
The works are all mixed media of acrylic and pastel on paper and measure 40.5 cm x 38cm.
