I live in Ireland and am recently retired from a day job in the public service. I wanted to take up a art / craft related hobby – but I hadn’t undertaken any art / craft work ever really since doing a bit of it at school. I was fortunate to find your website and am so impressed by your work and how to share it so freely and honestly you deserve an award. I purchased your small animal designs book and started on Project 1, the Vintage Chicken. However, as it was coming up to Easter, I decided to call it an ‘Easter Chick’ and paint in accordingly. It is a bit crude and I realise that there are improvements I would make it if I was doing a second time.
By the way, you mentioned that you are going to acquire some real chickens. I grew up on a farm and had them for 20 years but not since I left the homestead. Am sure you will take care to protect them from predators. Here, the main one is the fox.
Take good care of yourself during the Covid pandemic.
