Here come the girls...

I pitied this cockerel when I saw the attitude in the stance of these hens. Now I understand the phrase hen pecked...

Just came from Michaels blog and noticed your work. I am so happy to have found your blog. Outstanding work.

Yes, that cockerel does look a little hen-pecked, Lisa! I love to see sketches like these that seem so effortless (but I know they aren't) and yet say so much. I'm sure your sketchbooks would be a compelling read!

Hello Joan, welcome. Thank you very much for visiting and for your kind words.

Hi Michael, thank you. This was a sketch that seemed to draw itself. I'd been watching them for nearly an hour before I'd put pencil to paper. These little divas were keeping him really busy and it was so entertaining to watch.
