Game Roosters Watercolor

Game Roosters

Game Roosters

I finally found a place near me that still raises colorful chickens. I took several photos for reference.

This rooster painting was done without the use of masking fluid or grease pencil. I sprinkled salt on the background chicken house for textures.

What I would like to accomplish in the near future is to do a watercolor painting without sketching. I use the grid method for sketching now, it makes sketching easier, but I would rather just start painting.

Oh, the old roosters did not appreciate having their photo made, check out their spurs.

Crawfish For Sale

Crawfish For Sale - $1.99 lb.

I shot this crawfish photo for reference at a roadside crawfish stand here in Louisiana. I told these two Cajun guys who operated the crawfish stand, that I would give them prints of the painting whenever I finished it. I ended up designing them a new business card also.

I protected the feelers on the crawfish with a white grease pencil, so I could hurry up and get this painting done. This crawfish painting still took a long time to do.

Texas Longhorn Watercolor

Texas Longhorns

Texas Longhorns

Friends of mine own these Texas Longhorns at the W H Longhorn Ranch.

They have about 150 head of longhorn cattle there. I told them I would love to do some paintings of longhorn cattle, so I went and took pictures for reference. This is my first painting from those photos.

I will be selling art at Texas Art Festivals soon, so I am in the process of painting subjects to sell at these Texas Festivals.

My friends at the Longhorn ranch said they don't have any problems with coyotes.

Riverboat Days

by Don Cobb
(Shreveport, La. - U.S.)

River Boat Days

River Boat Days

This is a 18x24 watercolor I finished last week, I painted it in about 5 hours off and on. The water birds in the sky where the only things I used maskoid on, I dislike using maskoid, but I wanted the sky to be a more spontaneous wash.

I painted this subject from about twenty 1860's photographs I found on the internet, borrowing this and that as I sketched from each photo to make my rendition of that subject, using the grid method.

I will do a river town art festival in October for 8 days, the "Red River Revel", so I am hoping my prints of it will sell well.

Riverboats prospered in my area of North Louisiana for 100 years, when cotton was king.
I have done a lot of art festivals in the last two years and what is hot right now is dragonflies, rabbits, fleur de lis, cats, horses, birds and anything black and white, with a little color thrown in.

Hope you like my riverboat.
