Peace Watercolour Society had a paint out Wednesday in the hilly farm country in the borderlands of the Alberta and B.C.Peace Country. The weather was great and we had plenty of locations to discover. Check back here for more, but we’ll start with the chicken coop on an organic farm.
The trouble with drawing chickens is you can’t tell whether they’re coming or going! On the far left, the top one is coming… the bottom one is going… In either case they didn’t stay still long enough for me to get a good idea of what was going on with all those fluffy bits, never mind wattles and whatnot. I will, however, remember with fondness the gentle crooning of a happy hen house whenever I look at these sketches.
