Rooster


Recently,I took a photo of a beautiful rooster and made a sketch from that photo. As it is very difficult to draw animals while they move around, I think it's o.k. to sketch them from photos, too.

Ich habe neulich ein Foto von einem schönen Hahn gemacht und habe jetzt dieses Foto als Vorlage für diese Skizze benutzt. Da es sowieso sehr schwierig ist, Tiere zu zeichnen, wenn sie sich bewegen, denke ich, daß es in Ordnung ist, sie auch mit Hilfe von Fotos zu skizzieren.

10x12 cm (5x3,5 in) Pigma Micron Pen and watercolours on Brunnen Skizzen paper (110g).

Claudia, great job! I really like this!

Lovely rooster, Claudia. I like the highlights you saved on his feathers and the simple sketch of the ground detail too. I tried to make this larger, to better see your work - but couldn't. Is there any reason you don't post your paintings larger? They deserve it.

Thank you, Brian and Robyn!

@Robyn: I'm afraid the sketch isn't very big, only 10x12 cms. When I post it, I normally reduce the scan to 72 dpi; that's why it came out even a little smaller...

This is beautiful Claudia! I love the color and can imagine the rooster moving about. I haven't seen a real rooster in years! I also enjoyed your coffee sketches. I too love coffee! Me encantan tus dibujos!
