Big Red

I love the challenge of making a subject emerge from the background. I toned the panel with Cad red for this one and let it show through in certain areas of the rooster. I like the effect and the glow you can achieve by doing this. I also thought more about line for this painting than I usually do. Here's the musical inspiration...and I was. :o)
Oil on panel, 6" x 6"

This is incredible!!!! The red is intense and calming at the same time!! You are a master with color my friend, you make it all work together so well besides giving such character to the critter!
