Silky rooster

I was given permission to use a gorgeous photo from Robert Stephenson in England. I was very taken by the antique "old masters" look of the photo and wanted to give it a try to see if I could accomplish that look. I am pleased with how it turned out.
Silky chickens are a very old breed that came from China. They have blue wattles and comb and blue colored feathered legs. The feathers are almost like fur. They are bantam size and very sweet and friendly chickens. I love the expression on this roosters face and worked hard to get it correct.
