Cockerels for Terry

Having recently refurbished the chimney pipes for his wood burner in preparation for winter, Terry asked me if I’d paint some cockerels for him in the alcove behind the stove.

Stenciling in there was a bit of a tight squeeze but they turned out rather well.

Baby Cockerel Cushion

This little cockerel cushion is the latest addition to my ‘textile range‘, made from a fabric sample printed with one of my cockerel designs.

 

I made the baby cushion as a gift for the recent arrival who lives in the house where I sketched the original cockerel, which turned into a stencil

which has since adorned many walls….

I was a bit sad to find out recently that despite his regal appearance the cockerel I drew was firing blanks and was put up for adoption, but he died of shock just before his new owner turned up to claim him….just shows, a cocky exterior hides a multitude of insecurities….

Another outing for my strutting friends, in another beautiful Vejer town house…lucky chaps.

Two Cockerels

HereĀ“s a repeat of the cockerel image.

This time I applied the stencil twice to a door (acrylic paint)

Susan's Roosters

Cockerel

This piece evolved from a little pencil sketch I made of a neighbour’s cockerel

which I scaled up and used to cut a stencil, through which I applied acrylic paint to reclaimed wood

This image is now available on postcards and as digital prints (A3 size approx) and I can stencil him on almost any surface.

Yet more Discord Nancy

Having made a stencil type image of the Discord Nancy portrait I tried it out with some spray paint:

I gradually darkened this drawing with layers of charcoal, accentuating the planes and regions of the face. I developed it to make a stencil type portrait which I manipulated digitally and used as a template for a screen print (see below).
