here and there
this is lovely and your knowledge of the subject really comes through
Goeie genade!!Unbelievable Rob, ... The point of view on the painting is much lower, ... did you sit down while sketching it?This one is going on the desktop!!
thank you Vivien,it so lovely to watch those chicken,such characters!
felt like Rien Poortvliet!did the sketch from my view finder,Rene.that little chick up front is so curious.
Ooooh! I love it, especially that chicken in the foreground. : )
hi Leslie!i'm surprised how detailed the chicken looks,it was just a few strokes,i'm fascinated how the light shines through those red bits on topthanks!
Beautiful chickenscape Rob ;)
haha thanks Pablo!it was the light that made this one
Rob,Thanks so much for your comments on my blog..you were one of the first people to comment on my blog almost a year and half ago..it prompted me to click over and see your work,I've been a fan of yours ever since. Absolutely love your stuff. I've added you to my favorites and would love to traffic share with you, please feel free to add me to yours as well.All my best to you,Todd
i'll be delighted to add a link to your work Todd,you are doing such a great job.thanks for the kind words...
Your chickens are great, it must be so much fun to watch them. But what really makes this painting so wonderful to me is the light, as in all your work. Great stuff!
This is a wonderful painting Rob - I love it.
i can waste hours looking at those chicken,Mineke...this time i made the most of it...cheers!
hi Cara,so nice to hear from you again,thanks for liking!
love the photo perspective Rob...your welcome to use any of my photos...just let me know.
thanks Michael,yes the low point of view makes it more intimate...
The light gives atmosphere to the chicken yard. I just feel like I am with the chickens early in the morning and one is eyeing me in hopes of some grain. I enjoy seeing your easel set up with the chickens. Wonderful. Also, thanks for your thought provoking comment on my blog.
my pleasure Diane,yes the light is my main focus,the rest sort of just falls into place...
Hey RobYou captured the character of the chickens in this I like the positioning of them that shows they didn't keep still!Ryan
they are fun to watch Ryan,but evem more fun to paint.thanks!
Awesome chickens and you got right in there with them which is the way to do it. A painter I admire told me long ago that to paint cows you need to be standing in cow shit ;)I am linking you through your car blog. I have lots of car fans in my life and they would really appreciate the paintings
thanks for the link Mary,hope your friends enjoy the car paintings,lots of Nascar!you are right about standing in the middle of it,that is why plein air is such a good experience...i shall link you too.
wow, thats natural. nice and beautiful Rob.Great
thanks UCDthe chicken are great and willing subjects to paint.what is used car nation?
Rob, very very nice. I don't know how you managed doing such a great job of the chickens from life... they are fabulous. There is something very working in this piece that I can't say specifically.. but you've done it!
if we knew Michael,we would be doing master pieces all the time,and that's not going to happen,up and down,up and down,all we can do is keep looking,keep trying...but the winter light surely helped...
Thanks for lining me Rob. My friends loved the car painting. Lots of NASCAR fans in my life.
my pleasure Mary,plenty more Nascars to come,the season is shaping up nicely!
