Abstract Rooster with Zentangles for feather

This is my first challenge  (#65, Childhood Memories) and I would appreciate your critiques.  When I was a child growing up in West Virginia, I lived on a farm.  We had all kinds of farm animals, but the rooster ruled the chicken coop and farm yard.  We had all kinds of roosters.  Some roosters had beautiful feathers, others were down right mean.  I was really glad I was young and could run fast when the mean ones were showing their-selves.  I did this abstract rooster in watercolor pencils with Zentangles for feathers.  Patty Mayfield

I thought I left a comment this morning, but it seems to have gone missing. Grr. Anyway, I said I love the colors you've used on the rooster, it reminds me of Miro paintings, and the background sort of looks like chicken wire, maybe?? Did you draw/paint him, then applique him onto the fabric?
