Another Rooster in Watercolor

I’m continuing my practice of painting eyes and today I worked on a painting of a Rooster.

ROOSTER SEPT 28-15a

A light sketch and then I start painting the eye. I feel if I can create an amazing eye then the rest is just color, shape & fun!

ROOSTER SEPT 28-15c

I flooded the eye with color and waited for the pigment to settle into the paper, then with a damp brush I lifted a small amount of the excess water. I love the way the eye looks like it’s wet.
