Scribble Picnic - Chicken

Hi everyone,

The past couple of weeks have been a little busy with helping my son move to a new place and cleaning up the old place which will be finalised on Friday.

I planned a finished piece but time just got away from me so it's another work-in-progress this week. I hope to add more images to this post as the day progresses.

The theme is CHICKEN.

I started this little guy with a soft pencil sketch

First pass with watercolours. This was as far as I've managed so far...hope to post more here later.

************

Okay...I'm back with a couple more images including a completed piece...see below.


...okay, I think I'm calling it finished. I wish I hadn't used coloured pencils as they left texture where I didn't want it. I feel like he's overworked now. We live and learn, right?

  4. Well, I love him already! The first pass has a very sumi-e feel to it which I love. Can't wait to see the completed chick!

    Hoping the rest of the move/cleaning goes well. It's never much fun but hopefully the new place will be wonderful for him. . . :)

  6. I don't see any unwanted texture ... I think he is adorable just as he is. It would seem everyone is moving these days and yes, it sure takes up a lot of time and energy. Good luck to your son in his new place. I love watching how you developed your picture from pencil to final ... a learning process for sure. Really nice, Serena ...

  9. So adorable and beautifully rendered Serena. Love to hold them in my hand when they're tiny and fluffy like this.

    Good luck to your son in his new place.

  10. Testing this again. I see my comments didn't go through so maybe it's my browser?

    Anyway, I was saying that this is so beautiful, Serena. Wow. So impressive. Love it.

    Best wishes to your son!

  12. I love it! Of course not seeing it IRL I don't see a problem with the colored pencil - to me it adds some dimension and he/she looks so fluffy.
