We met Missy at the fall fair and she was not at all impressed with our efforts at getting a good photo of her. After a couple of hours of back and forth with all the other animals she finally decided to do the photo shoot.

I started with a blue underpainting for this chicken, I have been experimenting with slightly different colours...even maybe a bit less colour.  I love that you make the rules as you go with being creative.
