8″ × 10″ Coffee, salt, pen and coloured graphite pencil on watercolour paper

It was very hard to get a good photo of this because the coffee goes extremely glossy.

My coffee paintings seem to take on a mind of their own and this is no exception. Not exactly the rooster I had in mind for this painting but it just
started evolving so I went with it. It has turned out looking a lot darker than I had originally planned. I think a lot of that comes down to my lack of experience with watercolour. I guess with practice there can always be a rooster mk2

    Beautiful chicken! The coffee has a nice tone to it, very good!

  • Thankyou. I rushed into it a bit, making up the picture of the rooster instead of looking for a really good reference picture. (I might have to sneek down and take a picture of my neighbour’s rooster) LOL
