5x4" - oil on masonite

Well I can add chickens to the list of animals that are fun to paint. Fun but difficult, especially their little heads! This is my submission to this week's DPW Challenge

I really like how you painted these hens, they look like buff orpingtons. Did you paint this from life or a photo. It is really great! I loved your ducks but I love the hens even more.

Thank you all for the kind comments! And thank you Douglas for the info on the type of chickens! I painted this using several photos actually. I experimented with various arrangements until I came up with a composition that I liked.
