First plein air 2012: rainout

Our Wednesday Plein-Air group headed out today for our first of the year session but the weather did not cooperate. Six of us persevered in Mike Harris's studio and pushed the paint around for a couple of hours. My wife had been asking for a chicken or two for the new kitchen so I tried the above study of a rusty coloured hen which she has been caring for over the winter.

The photo is just a quick snap in the studio, complete with glare. I'll try to post a propper one later.
