Chicken Ranch Prada
Our Artcolony challenge this month (and I'm just under the July 15th deadline) is "unusual shoes". These are my rain boots for venturing down to the chicken pen in the rain and winter cold. You wouldn't believe how the chickies ran from me on my first trip down. They usually just see the food coming, but I think the sight of big orange boots and circles probably "freaked" them out. This piece is small...originally 8 x 10...but I cropped the top of the standing boot in a bit as I felt the background was rather boring. So...if it's not right...crop it! This was painted rather quickly in about 2 hours, including the sketching time. The next time I use masking fluid, I'll be more careful of my edges as all the circles possibly should be a little neater, but, not this time.
