About this work of Art
Pecking Order is a hand printed etching finished with watercolour. When you watch chickens being fed you do become aware that there is an etiquette around who goes first. Get this wrong and you could get pecked! They are keen to eat but watching each other quite carefully. I did lots of drawings of this flock of chickens, they had wonderful markings and textures and some of the cockerels had fantastic tail feathers. This print is printed as an edition of 100 and is unframed.
