Watercolor Weekend - Feather Study
6x4in watercolor on Arches paper
This is the first study I have done
of an Eagle Feather. I want to try
painting it in oil.
It is such a long feather at 11 inches
I feel I need to find a way to show
the scale of it. I understand now
why an inkwell is usually shown
with a quill.
Any ideas - or do you think it really
needs to show the size?
