Yesterday I had a guinea hen incident (they are such oblivious birds!) and it reminded me that I have been intending to paint them. They have such fantastic polka-dotted feathers, and I thought it would be fun to paint something bold and contrasty and graphic.
This painting came out a bit more humorous and cartoonish than i intended, but then they are such crazy, cartoonish birds. Maybe next time I will strive for elegant guineas--now that will be a challenge!
