Happy Mother’s Day! 🤍❤️🖤 I haven’t had much time for drawing or painting lately, but I finally got around to finishing this piece this morning. This is my little rooster, Basil. He’s way cuter than I’ve captured him - definitely one I’ll come back to when I’ve worked out this white on black style. ...

Something a little bit different today. Here’s a coloured pencil and ink portrait of the lovely Gelsomina from @allevamento.cocincina. I’m setting myself a challenge to complete a grid of ‘white on black’ poultry portraits. 🤍🖤🤍 What do you think? ...

A detail of the #plymouthrock I posted earlier... I spend a lot of time on conference calls in my ‘real job’, so detailing each and every feather is more than art - it’s a survival strategy. 😳😬🤓 This is my kind of meditation. What’s yours? ...

Caption question... ❓I’m working on a trio of headshots this week. This lovely lady - Cleopatra of @frau.march.und.ihr.federvieh - was the first. She is such a beauty and I can’t wait to come back to her for a fuller portrait. But for now, what should I title this one? ...
