Another mystery photo! Is he an artist who builds giant chicken statues or perhaps a chicken rancher with his trademark chicken?
I noticed that when I paint with gouache on cold press watercolor paper I end up with little white spots in dark areas so this time I tried a different gouache technique. I covered the whole sketch first with thin washes. It wasn’t that helpful. I learned that for that to work it’s necessary to get the values right in the underpainting, making darks really dark.
Below is the sketch and in progress photos.
