Sketching the chickens today, they are so inquisitive.


Ed came in to the pen and was feeding them scraps so I did a very quick mixed media sketch.

At this time of lockdown, I can stand in the garden and paint the chickens, only problem is they all want to stand around my feet pecking my wellies, so I had to stand outside their pen and wait for them to get bored with me standing there, to get on and do what chickens do! So I could do some quick small pleinair oilpainted sketches.

So in this world of lockdown I am working from sketches and photos as Pleinair painting is probably banned, we are only supposed to go out once a day for exercise and I guess painting is not classed as so? So while I am out walking the dogs I do quick sketches. The cherry blossom is just coming out and the creamy, greeny, yellowy flowers against the grey and blue sky are irresistable to paint.
