Day 168
I managed to get myself out for a walk by 8.15 so I could pick Mum up for her Sunday outing by 9.45. I walked the loop intending to try sketching the long drive down to the Governor General's. On the way, I saw two beautiful chooks near the brickworks. They must have escaped from someone's yard. By tomorrow, they will probably be just a heap of feathers, especially as the Rooster is intent on wooing the Lady, instead of looking out for foxes. 8 km walk

Gorgeous colours. I do love colourful roosters like this one but have yet to draw one.

Love the rooster! I love chooks but find them incredibly hard to draw.

It's so great to see color again on your blog. The tree lined way and the birds are just beautiful. I love chickens and am sad to hear they'll be just feathers--but then I eat them nearly every day, so...!
