Rebirth by windfalcon Rebirth by windfalcon
I bought a new shade of pink paint and decided it would look good on a phoenix :d Yes, I have weird reasonings for buying/using art supplies.

This has some really awesome metallic gold and silver pigments on it, but sadly it gets lost in the scan.

Acrylic on turkey feathers.

Its brilliant, do you do anything to the feathers first before painting on them, ie, a wash of pva, marvelous

Woops, I never replied to this! Yes, actually, PVA is exactly what I use :) But I only use it to connect the two (or in this case, three) feathers together. I spray the feathers with fixative to help keep the vane from coming apart, but mostly it's just a thin layer of acrylic where my subject will be to act as a 'glue'.

The lighting makes it look like it can fly off of those feathers any moment

I like the illusion of depth created by your choice of colors. :P The secondary light source is a nice touch.

Thanks! Sometimes I worry that I abuse the whole secondary light source (because I use it a lot in my feathers), but I really think it helps the figure pop.
