Chicken people. That's what my sister-in-law calls her family of 60+.
Today I've been experimenting - using acrylic as watercolour, and then penciling over the top to create a nice rich texture, before uploading and combining with digitally coloured background and plant detailing.
Having spent hours this morning trying to create the idea in my head I've decided to step away for a day and two and leave the idea to ferment a little longer. At the moment I'm not sure how to create the effect I'm after for a full size piece, but I have at least test run the 'analogue' chickens on a digital canvas.
