Have done these today as I am getting ready for an exhibition in Chorley the last week in September... have had some great advice recently... one is that cockerels sell and two go smaller in the current climate so that I can offer paintings at reasonable prices. So these are 11x7 approx, one eighth imperial. Of the two I prefer the first, it somehow looks more spontaneous and unusually that was the second one I did so maybe the practice with the first paid off!!! Often the first is the best attempt so am pleased that trend is reversing as it means I am learning from my previous mistakes!!
So I intend to do a few more smaller pieces which I will mount and possibly frame, maybe a couple more cockerels with different colours....... a different approach as one of my recent goals had been to go bigger!!!
