Description This painting of a single chicken walking on grass, was painted at the end of 2012. It is painted in oils,on a red acrylic ground, in one six hour sitting. The size of the image is 10 x 8 and is created on a canvas board.I took a number of photos of chickens during the previous summer, with the aim of creating a fresh painting of the bird. I added more grass in to the background to make the chicken stand out better and give the painting a more organic look, rather than the concrete surface it was walking on in reality.
Martin Davey, Southampton Member Since March 2007 Artist Statement Hi,
Welcome to my gallery, which contains largely illustrations for the childrens market.
I like my paintings to be as accessible as possible to a wide audience. Detail and colour are important, combined with a simple visual message for any one to enjoy.
The artwork is created entirely in the art program, photoshop, from the rough drawing up to the finished work,using a drawing tablet.
My career has largely been based in creating artwork for the animation industry.
