Who knew that a Rooster could wear an African necklace? Well, this Rooster that I have painted can gracefully and eloquently wear an African hand-crafted necklace.
The Rooster and the African Necklace is an original oil painting by Anita Louise Hummel. The oil painting is of an almost white rooster wearing a very hand-crafted-looking African necklace around his neck. The necklace has a bit of glitz with some heavy gold leafing added.
Read on further to discover why I have painted The Rooster With the African Necklace oil painting. Prints of the painting are available at Fine Art America, or you can contact me if you want to purchase the original. As with all my art, my goal is to paint #ArtThatMakesYouSmile.
The Art Inspiration – The Rooster And The African Necklace
I love to paint animals, and I loved this rooster as I thought he was beautiful – such a beautiful white elegant rooster. I am not sure what inspired me to paint this painting, but I really like the rooster, and I thought putting an African-looking necklace on him would add some fun to the oil painting.
I felt if a rooster was going to actually wear a necklace around his neck it would need to be one that really made a statement. I love what the iconic fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg said about jewelry:
This is how I feel about this necklace on this rooster. Without the necklace, this painting would be a normal painting of a rooster. The African necklace adds a bit of spice to the entire painting as it is now a painting of a Rooster with a large African necklace around its neck.
Like with all my oil paintings, I want a painting that will be fun and have some spice. My goal with my paintings is to have you look at the painting and smile because Anita Louise Art is #ArtThatMakesYouSmile.
About The Oil Painting – The Rooster and The African Necklace
The Rooster and the African Necklace paint is like most of my art – it has some fun, bright and subtle colors. I use heavy gold leafing on the necklace and have painted the necklace to give it an African and hand-crafted feel. Here are some points about the painting:
- The Rooster – I love how the rooster is looking away or over his shoulder. I feel like then you can fully see the necklace around his neck. I choose to paint a rooster as I love the red crown on his head; I feel like it fits so well for him to have on a necklace.
- The Necklace – The necklace has a lot of gold leaf on it and also some other colors. I purposely made it look more handmade or almost rustic as this is an African necklace that would have been handmade in a small village someone in Africa. The necklace is also quite large as it is a statement piece.
- Painting Colors -Besides the necklace colors, all the other colors are pretty subdued. This is because my main focus was to have the necklace stand out on the rooster. I purposely choose a completely white rooster as I did not want to have a rooster with many colors.
