Dust Bowl Dancing Hens

Yesterday I did only a couple of Jesse texture drawings,  so today was a big makeup   day.  With 18 drawings to do, I headed back down to the chicken yard.
The hot, dry dust was just what the hens wanted after all that wind!  They had hollowed out a half dozen bowls and they were dancing and pecking and scratching and hunkering down in the bowls.  The big rooster paraded around, too important to play in the dust.
Every now and then he would jump on a hen, who would then fluff herself up and get right back into the dust dance.

  1. There's something very satisfying about painting hens - love these drawings.
