|Bantam Rooster - 10x8 oil on panel|
So, with this upswing in chicken farming, and the affection for the chickens themselves, it would certainly make sense that chicken paintings should be more popular than ever. All I needed to get started was a good photo, which I found at a website called PaintMyPhoto.ning.com. This is a site where artists are encouraged to use photographer's images for creating art without copyright infringements. Their slogan is "Where artists and photographers meet." The photo reference for this oil was provided by PMP member Li Newton.
