No Chickens...

We painted the chickens at Darryl's house over two years ago and I posted my watercolor in Chickens!  Darryl and his wife generously invited us back to paint in his backyard which is a lovely, calm spot to spend the morning.  The patio area and garden are just beautiful.  Besides the plants, there is a fish pond with trickling water, bird feeders, and Darryl's beautiful daughter and grandson posed by the pond for us.  Unfortunately, there are only two chickens left and they were very shy when we visited.  Some great colors really caught my eye.  There were lots of greens of course, plus a Japanese Red Maple, and the yellow stucco of the house made a great color combination.  I tried a gouache piece this time, and look forward to another paint-out at Darryl's.
