Sussex Hen as Totem

Sussex Hen as Totem

Original available at Etsy: [link]

There's three more hens coming over the next week! :D Time that a very under-estimated, but *awesome* animal, got a bit more love.


This piece is crafted on sturdy bend and damage-resistant Crescent medium weight illustration board, which is 100% rag and completely acid free, and gallery quality; with watercolour pencil, pencil, water-fast fineliner, and acrylic and iridescent paint.

Oh yes, I'm kinda scared of live chickens, they look so evil, like they're plotting the demise of humanity. :fear:

Nice! I especially like that black-and-white pattern on the neck.

Wow, I wouldn't expect a picture of a "regular" hen to be so beautiful :) I like colours, shapes and contrasts here.

All the hens I chose had different colourings, the 'rhode island red' probably has the most recognisable, but Sussex hens are pretty popular in the UK. :)
