Tonight we started our new project - exotic hens. Working from good quality hen "portraits", as a group we explored the painterly and artistic qualities and possibilities of these incredible creatures; sharing ideas about how we might approach the project, what excited and or intrigued us individually about the hens, and technical considerations. We agreed a process including thumbnail and colour swatch analysis and masking the image to find the key elements we want to explore in our studies over the three weeks.
