Gullincombe Portrait I by Nambroth Gullincombe Portrait I by Nambroth
"Gullincombe Portrait I" 5"x7" Oil.

A fun portrait of my first rooster, Gullincombe. He wasn't a good fit for our flock, and we found him a new home... 8 hours away! Driving with a bellowing rooster for 8 hours is quite the adventure.

Lovey painting! Makes me think of if an old rooster was an earl or a duke or such and sat for his formal portrait. He looks all formal and ever-so-slightly mad. (Also, wow. That sounds awful... and I've had to drive with a nonstop-howling cat who kept trying to break out of the carrier constantly while moving before! I'm glad I didn't have to go in a car with him again after that, he did NOT travel well... transporting my entire aquarium of live fish was a picnic compared to that.)

He is so pretty!  We only had one rooster so far, but a hawk got him not long after he was old enough to start crowing.  He was a pretty black and white bantam, not sure of the breed.

That's what I call a good portrait. He looks so individual, so... cocky.
When I used to keep chickens, it was such a revelation how different can they be.

Each of mine are very individualistic! I can even tell who is making what noise.

I used to have pet chickens too, one of them was similarly colored to this and it brought back memories...

He looks like quite the handsome fellow.  I love how you did the subtle iridescent feathers on his neck.
