Lua O Ka Moa (Second Rooster)

Lua O Ka Moa (Second Rooster)
12 x 9
Pastel on Canson (Black)

This is the second rooster painting from the Hawaii trip. Another fast and loose. This is the second in a series of roosters from the parking lot across from the lava tube. As with the prior painting in the series (Mua Moa), I did this on Canson. Fast, Loose, trying hard not to over think it - and wow is that hard!!! I realized as I looked back, I almost forgot those lovely blue feathers under the wing...then I realized, sometimes they showed and sometimes not? Same chicken or different? Not sure. Such wild beauty!!! 

It was an overcast day, so not a lot of light/shadow. I need to make some up. But for the exercise, I learned a lot.
