What a delectable little study! I love the way you loosely indicated the hens. Very subtle, yet recognizable.

Great one Rob. Wish I could paint this loosely. Great palette and little details!

rob ijbema said...

hehe,depends how badly you want it cooper!geuss my advise would be bigger brushes,concentrating on the big shapes and don't bother to much about details...
thanks for the compliment,much appreciated!
