Delilah Smith

I started the painting with a toned canvas.

I sketched the basic composition in with transparant red oxide. Iwanted to make sure that I had rom for the tail feathers.

I painted the sky with a mixture of phthalo blue and white.

I developed the background.

I develop the comb and throat feathers.

I add the forground color and the shadow of the rooster.

Using a large brush , I block in the darkest colors of the Rooster. I add the throat feathers.  I use cad. orange and alizarin crimson.

I added some green to the tail feathers. I I add more details . I mix white and yellow ochre for the legs and feet.
I tweak a few of the small things
