Acrylic and Oil on canvas
A friend of mine, who lives in France, is opening a restaurant opposite the a beautiful, fairytale castle in May. (Montclera Castle). She asked me if I could paint them for the bare walls of her new restaurant. I incorporated the tower at the entrance to the castle and my favourite characters .... cockerels and hens. The storyline is a little silly but I did chuckle during the painting process. The hen is determined to cross the road to have her meal! I used my favourite cobalt blue acrylic background to get started and then incorporated loose lines and areas of detail to bring the scene to life.
