First feather painting ever, and i'm so proud :D

Gull feather
About three hours.
Acrylic
Might put this up for sale, but i'm thinking no, mainly because the feather is crap and well... it's the first one i have done! ;P
I will be taking commissions for these if anyone is interested!

When someone uses supplies that are out of the 'norm' for creativity, that is when I think the phrase "true art." This is an amazing concept. And the painting itself turned out very well to boot. :D

feather paintings will never cease to completely floor me. the patience involved must have been incredible, it's gorgeous! how long did this take, and how are feathers to paint on? o.o

actually it took me about 2 and a half hours to paint. This particular feather was a bitch to paint on though because it was curved. Tail feathers (to my knowledge) are not as curved so it makes more of a flat surface. But surprisingly it wasn't that difficult

helped me a lot!
