Early Morning Riser

The Rooster
by Artist Rita Squier

Watercolor Painting
11 x 15 inches

I teach watercolor painting classes. I find my lesson inspirations from all different sources. This painting was done in one of my classes on the night of my husband's birthday several years ago. I allowed him to choose the subject matter for that night's class. This class lesson was adapted from a book on chinese painting and simplified to be able to demo and paint it in one two hour class.

Right now, it just screams "Good Morning Sunshine!"

I chuckled a little bit when I saw this post. Just this morning I was watching a "Death Metal Rooster" video on YouTube!
