Black Croad Langshan Rooster

Black Croad Langshan, 15 x 20, acrylic on panel

This is the one I painted for another Heritage artist. Lucky for me he left it to hang in the gallery for a bit so I was able to photograph it. The Black Croad Langshan is an endangered livestock breed. Originating in China, this feather-footed fellow is entirely black with iridescence in the hackles and tail feathers.

Painting chickens is pure recreation!

Hi Patrice - Birds are always good subjects I think. Interesting note about the sales being under 100 dollars.
