‘Cock sure’

This was so much fun, watercolour and then lots of soft pastel. This is painted on daler rowney mixed media, it is lovely thick card, with a bit of texture, so it holds the pastel well, not so good for the watercolour, but it was ok for the base painting. This lovely bird was found on paint my photo, ย I admired his pose straight away. Cock sure!

About REcreate-RebeccaEvansCreate

My name is Rebecca Evans, living in the New Forest I have been inspired to paint the many animals often seen around me. Having ridden since Childhood, painting equines was a natural path to follow. I use a variety of media, watercolour, oil, charcoal, pastel,inks, plus a few more, infact I will try most things. Choosing the medium to work with can really change the effect of the art, and therefore the character of the animal. Sometimes it is an instant decision, sometimes it is the mood from within me which determines which medium I choose to use. I never know what might inspire me next, but if itโ€™s hairy, I will be sure to try.

    Cocksure couldn’t be more accurate – what a character! Lovely pastel work Rebecca, smooth feathers and a perfectly vigorous background – the similar colours make him appear larger than life (which is *totally* what he wants!) I’ve long wanted a cockerel; they’re so impressive. However, I feel the neighbours would soon grow tired of the new alarm clock!

    • Usually A3 is the smallest, I do however have a couple of A4 ish blocks of watercolour, so when the A3 blocks are in use, I grab the small one to start afresh. With canvases I also prefer A3, but lately I have done some smaller work, creating some charity auction pieces….also square, which I struggle with, ms society, was cd size ( 12×12 I think) our hospice was 20x20cm, needless to say it was a challenge to down size! If I buy loose sheets of expensive watercolour, I cut it down to half size, due to cost, and lack of desk space ….although I have painted larger on the living room floor in the past, and it is not comfortable.
