Free Range Bethlehem

Free Range Bethlehem

This is a slightly bigger study, again very cropped of the chickens in 'Bethlehem'. The tableaux are set up at weekends in Advent, the buildings remain all year, inhabited by the various donkeys, sheep, goats ducks etc. A wonderful place to paint! Bethlehem overlooks the harbour of Mgarr, Gozo.

Fast moving effect obtained indeed. Lively and colourful work.

Lots going on here Thalia, gives the impression of the various chickens milling around, can see you enjoyed it. Art group this afternoon, if the unseasonal sunny wether continues I might pop out and do a sketch or two!

So colourful and engaging to the eye Thalia, all these hens in movement. Lovely poses and colours mixes showing the various shapes and forms, and cockerels strutting about in the sunlight!

Good busy scene and shapes, Thalia.

Nice work Thalia, you make your scenes alive with colour and action.

How lovely Thalia, great, colourful work!

Thank you so very much Michael, Stephen, Angela, Cesare, Jim and Margaret. It was painted a while ago when it was sunny!

Another beauty I seem to have missed earlier.

Hang on Studio Wall

A plein air study of the free range hens and cockerels in our Gozitan 'Bethlehem'. Loved doing these fast moving studies, I have cropped the original painting considerably.
