Second in my Barnyard Series - Rooster

This rooster was painted in much the same way as the little piggy.  I used one of Bob's old paintings, covered it with strips of newspaper and book pages.  Then I drew the rooster, painted around it and, lastly, painted the rooster.  He is 14 x 20."

This Little Piggy Stayed Home

Version 2, cropped.
Here she is, all finished.  See below for description of how I painted her.  Version 1 uncropped.

This is a failed watercolor.  I glued down various strips and pieces of paper, some pages from an old paperback,
some strips from sheetmusic, and some collage papers.  Then I sketched Ms Piggy onto it and painted around her with
fluid acrylic paint.  The final step was to paint Ms Piggy, leaving some of the collage pieces show through and covering some of them up.
