Santa brought me several instructional watercolor DVDs. One of them by Jean Haines - a DVD bound to build up your enthusiasm and make you pick up the brushes. After watching the demonstration on painting cockerels, I had to try it myself. I understand now why Jean is so excited about this subject. It gives the opportunity to really enjoy color.

I found a couple of photos of roosters that I have taken on my vacations. The photo of this first handsome guy above was taken in the Swiss ethnographic village of Ballenberg.

And this cocky guy (pun intended) I saw pacing self-importantly on a sunny city square at Key West, Florida.
