Moonflight - Painted Feather by windfalcon Moonflight - Painted Feather by windfalcon
After seeing feather paintings around DA, I decided to try my hand at it. One of the artists whose work inspired me to try painting feathers was *Nambroth - if you haven't seen her art, I advise you to go look at her work. It's gorgeous.

Of course, we all know I couldn't resist painting a falcon with my introduction to feather painting. Thanks to my art professor, I was able to get a hold of some good turkey feathers (he uses them for calligraphy quills). I hope to be able to get some other kinds of feathers, maybe dark-to-light or with interesting mottling (duck or goose might work).
