Here is a picture I came up with from that phrase "chicken no make good house pet". I did this with pencils and water soluble pastels. I'm stuck on those again. But this one also had a foundation of acrylic paints layered/textured some. I always do up several ofand let them dry. I put them away and later pull them out to create art on.
O.K. so it is a Rooster. Don't be such a rigid Annie. A rooster is a boy chicken right? Just go with it!
