Crow Master rooster

11x8.5 watercolor on Kilimanjaro 140 lb cold press paper, drawn and painted over the weekend for an online exercise with WetCanvas! Using my iPad, I flipped the white rooster image then used a summer filter to make him more colorful with vivid yellow gold and gamboge feathers.  Blue Bice by American Journey are the opaque turquoise blue areas for cool touches in a warm temperature painting.  No masking was used for his tiny feathers above his eye.  The larger the wattle and comb, the more females he can attract.
