19 Chickens + 1 Fox
This was a final piece completed for the second year of my degree. I was particularly happy with the outcome of the chickens in this piece, drawn using continuous line in fine liner. The fox, however, didn't turn out as well as I'd have liked and I think it would have provided more of a contrast between the chicken 'tail' if the use of watercolour was less spontaneous and more controlled. I'd like to revisit the 'continuous line' technique in the future as it forces you to think carefully about the object you're illustrating to ensure the drawing is readable, and not a scribble. The flowing movement was surprisingly therapeutic as well!
