It is amazing how many paintings one can get from one site visit! This is the fourth painting from the Boston Mill/Thompson Mill park I visited in late June of this year. Although several of the landscapes were started on site, not surprisingly these chickens moved too quickly for me to paint them. I took some photographs and worked from those.
I was sitting on a low stool and this chicken came right up to me. Even though I could have reached down and touch it I didn’t want to alarm the bird and have it turn on me!
