billing and cooing

Mr Grumpy and friend, aged not very old. From a photograph by Steve Golson. Last of what were effectively white-on-white studies and last visit for now to the animals of Little Pond Farm Thanks to Terry for  photos - doing a daily painting means it is often a struggle to find reference material. There is a limit to how many times you can pick on your own animals as models. But here is a piece in graphite I did a few months ago

This was Charlotte (RIP) and her chick Kitty (who is still very much with us). We got broody Charlotte a few fertilised eggs but only one hatched successfully (next time we didn't buy our fertilised eggs from e-Bay...). This is her with the chick, introducing baby to the rest of the flock

Anyway, that is the end of this short diversion into feathers - next week, back to fur. Thanks for reading and have a great weekend
