Saturday mornings at the moment are spent at art class. I am learning lots of new art skills which I hope I can transfer to drawings and paintings of my hen (Hatty) and guinea fowl.
I was first inspired to draw poultry when I saw Picasso’s pastel picture of the cockerel which he drew in 1938 and ever since I saw this artwork I have been itching to draw poultry.
This afternoon I gave it a go for the first time. Here are my efforts. I drew the pictures in pencil using photographs to get the detail as the real live hen and guinea fowl wouldn’t have stood still long enough!

I hope you do not find my pictures too poultry!
