Barred Chicken

I like the pose of this Plymouth Rock chicken.  The pattern on the plumage comes from bars of pigment (black) and bars of no pigment (white)  I wanted to suggest the pattern without painting too tightly.  This painting is about the exciting and dramatic color contrasts between the red comb and the green grass, and the exciting and dramatic value changes between the white and gray and black feathers.
