Chianti Classico, Italy - 12x15" Pastel

While in Tuscany I visited Chianti, and it turns out that the rooster is the official symbol of Chianti Classico wine. The rooster symbol adorns every bottle, and I spotted this clay rooster on the rooftop of a little winery there. I wanted to capture the sunbaked feeling of the brick as well as the contrast between the clay and the sky, and the shadow pattern in the roof.
