The Rooster that devoured Cleveland!!!

He gets very ornery but more frightening than that, he's gargantuan and hungry! Well, actually, he is only a watercolor painting on 140 lb. cold press paper, 16 inches by 22 inches. I worked from a photo reference that I found online. Not your average view of a rooster. His head was painted wet-on-dry and the background and the partial view of his body was painted wet-on-wet. An imposing beast, indeed! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!!

Is he related to the eggplant that ate Chicago? [old Bill Cosby skit] Great painting from a unique perspective.

Fabulous point of view and for some reason, I seem to recall an old black and white movie that had an ornery bigger than life rooster in it...or is it my imagination?

David, you jest . . . but you have obviously never been on the "wrong side" of a rooster - they can be quite frightening! Love this one.
