Ivory Rooster - Final

I finally finished adding blades of grass underfoot. Also, I repositioned the uppermost chick because I didn't like the head-on symmetry of it. I hope you can appreciate what a magnificent guy this rooster is, and sense the mutual protectiveness between him and the hen. Time to give the size 0 brush a rest.

One of these days, I may learn to paint details under overlapping foliage first, but I'm usually too impatient to see larger color masses first. I've added details to the purple leaves behind the hen, and still have to add elements to the foreground.
