Garden Chicken

Took this amazing photo of a mama chicken at the Northwind Perennial Gardens and have been looking at it for almost two years now. I wanted to try painting it, but was so intimidated by the intricate details on the bird; it was a challenge! Started with the brush on black, but needed to brighten up the feathers. In the end I'm really glad I introduced the palette knife because of the texture it added.
