I don't usually sketch animals, but the woman who owns the B&B I've lived in for the last 4 years has written a short story she wants me to illustrate -- about two chickens she's owned.

I thought I'd better get in a bit of practice!

What gloriusly rich colours and a very chickeny expression.

Excellent Lin! I'm not crazy about birds in general but love sketching roosters.

The rooster is very realistically rendered. Great!

Great color on this -- and wonderful highlights on those feathers around his neck. How exciting to illustrate a story, too!

Fantastic Lin! Looks just like the chooks we used to have.

You've captured that expression perfectly!
