Here is today’s offering for day 2 of the 30 in 30 painting challenge: a turkey feather from my sister’s house in PA. They have occasional turkey wanderings through their yard (I’m so jealous!) and I get to benefit from their feather stash on occasion.
This particular guy was quite old and wispy until near to the top, as you can see by the photo, and I had difficulty portraying that to my satisfaction and making the two very different looking pieces of the feather look like they belonged to one unit. However for my first feather “flight” in watercolor I think it isn’t half bad.
Any feather suggestions from you painters out there? I’m definitely giving this another try or two….
Thanks for stopping by, and please leave me a note. I enjoy hearing from you!
