Pheasant Feather Painting

A friend of mine just opened up a coffee shop and bookstore; she hired me to do all her menus and signs and stuff... and then offered to let me sell my art there - cool!

so I plan to do a few really nice featherpaintings of Idaho-type wildlife, and jared's (supposedly) going to build me some shadowbox frames for them, and see if they sell. :}

This one, duh, is a ringneck pheasant. I used acrylic inks this time.. they're really super awesome. o.o i think i'm hooked!

I like the texture of the paint on the top feather, and the colors. Also, the green on the grass is appealing. ^^ Good luck with selling art at the coffee shop!

Acrylic inks? Like... pens that use acrylic? Whaaaat? I want some if that's true! =D

GORGEOUS job on this pheasant piece. Absolutely beautiful. I wouldn't mind buying that for my dad. :)

you probably could load them into a quill ink pen if you wanted! but they come in little ink jars with droppers.. um.. it's sort of like really potent, liquid acrylic. what i loved most about them was the consistency..
in order to get my acrylics to work right, i have to water them down to thin them out, so they're not blobbing around messing up my little details. the problem is that then the color gets weakened, and you have to hit it with a couple of layers to get a strong color..
the acrylic inks were already the perfect thinness, but vibrant as ever! it made things soooo much easier and faster..

I bet it did! Thanks for the tips, I'm sure they'll help when I get these sweet pens. :hug:
