Free Range Silkies by Dianne  Ilka


Small (23.2" x 16.4")

Available to buy on…

A3 size soft pastels (Art Spectrum, Schminke & Rustytone) on Burgundy Canson TEX paper

Commissioned piece

I was given a very basic picture of some silkie chickens to base this piece on. It’s actually been a good change for me to come up with something out of my head and not just copying a photo :)
I’m delivering it this afternoon so hope they like it.

Thankyou so much for stopping by and taking the time to look at my artwork!
A lot of my original artwork displayed on here is also available for sale. Please feel free to send me a message for more details.

    I agree, they are sure to love this painting. It’s just beautiful. What are the rustytone pastels like?

  • I’m really liking the pastels. They are great on the sanded paper. My set also has alot of different colours that I didn’t have either. They are shorter than other pastels but are designed like that so they are easy to turn on their sides. Looking forward to playing more with them :)

    Oh, this is beautiful! The chickens are so lovely and they look happy. Anyone would love to have this work of art to call their own!

  • Thankyou so much Vivian! I’m glad you think that they look happy. I think that all chickens should be happy :)
