3 quick sketches

I'm working on filling in the final blank pages in a returned sketchbook that circulated around to 12 people in Jim Doran's Sketchbook exchange--I did these quickly with Faber-Castell and Pigma artist pigment pens. On the first chicken, I added a little white gouache. The second chicken is one of about 15 sketches I did on newspaper before I did the sketch in the Moleskine. On the last picture, I added a little colored pencil. The Moleskine is one with yellow paper, so they all look a little too yellow to suit me. Click images to view slightly larger.

I forgot to mention that I dedicated that one to you.

You did good with the sketchbook with these. Especially the first one, my favorite. I'm liking chickens more and more. Will I like them when I am asked to chicken sit for Amy, tho???

How many chickens does Amy have?
