Gloria J Zucaro's "The Chicken Has Flown the Coop!"

Hello,
Tonight I am posting a little info about the painting I did for The Traveling Chicken.  I had a lot of fun making up the story to go with the painting.  You can read all about it at The Traveling Chicken Blog.



















"And They All Admired Her Spots"

I used watercolor paper and acrylic paints. 
The painting is 5.75" x 11.75"

Linking to Paint Party Friday

Have a wonderful weekend,

Gloria

    1. Hi Arnoldo, Yes, I was trying a new thing(to me) composition-wise. Putting everything on a diagonal between points on the outter edges of the painting. have a good week.

  8. Love the colorful chickens. My mother told me that as very young children my sister and I received dyed chicks for Easter. I am pretty sure that is not good for the chicks but those feathers grew out because we didn't end up with adult chickens that were colorful.

    1. I enjoyed those Easter chicks, too! But I can see how they could easily be injured by little hands and feet(accidentally)! Have a wonderful week.

  14. Gloria, to answer your question about my altered book. I glued with matte medium gel every two pages together. As I work through the book I have done a few different things to prepare the paper. Mostly, though, I used Gesso, either white or black and in a couple of cases clear. My pages are not uniformly thick. Sometimes I accidentally got 3 pages instead of two. Sometime the gesso covered better than other. It is fun but I am definitely not proficient at mixed media. I really like watercolors better.
