Feather...



Om weer een beetje in een ritme van regelmatig schilderen te komen, heb ik besloten met een serie kleine schilderijtjes te beginnen. Dit is de eerste.
Ik raap altijd allerlei dingen op die ik op straat vind: veertjes, bladeren, stenen, schelpen op het strand, enz. Dit is een zwart-grijze veer, maar als je goed kijkt zie je er blauwe en paarse tinten in. Dus zo heb ik hem geschilderd.

To get back into a rhythm of painting regularly, I decided to start with a series of small paintings. This is the first.
I always pick up things I find in the street: feathers, leaves, pebbles, shells on the beach, etc. This is a black and gray feather, but when you look closely you see blue and purple shades. So that is how I painted it.

Dear Judy - isn't it amazing when one studies a subject how many different colors can be found. This is lovely. I too enjoy painting feathers. In fact I have a box where I collect them. So delicate and fragile and yet how much warmth they provide to our little birds. Have a blessed day.

Lovely, Judy! I love how you rendered those soft little downy feathers that nestle closest to the bird's body.

We all seem to lose our way a little at this time of year - myself included! These small studies are a great way to keep at it when other things get in the way... And this is lovely! :0)

Exquisite feather studies. I've never painted just a single feather before but you've definitely inspired me to try this :)
