Jewel Toned Rooster

Jewel Toned Rooster   12x12"  oil
I've been working on dark toned panels and the colors here turned out particularly vibrant. It does force me to use more paint. I used to use gouache on black for a really graphic style and haven't played with it for a long time, but this is similar. Judging value and color against black is an interesting change.

Very handsome rooster! Beautiful colors and your brush strokes are very painterly. I'll have to try painting on a black surface. Sounds interesting and it certainly works for you!!
