Thank you Julie!
Okay so earlier I posted a thread about using Budgie feathers to make Jewelry or painting on the feather itself https://talkbudgies.com/general-budgi...thers.htmlwell
well...it got me in a feathery mood so I fooled around with some watercolor today
It's loosely based off of one of Hermes' feathers but I was kind of just having some fun with it and adding color here and there and just playing with it. I was also trying to schedule something with some people while I was doing it so I was multitasking haha. So obviously not my best work but it was fun
I was originally planning on just having a white background with a small shadow under the bottom of the feather, but I then I looked at my colorful palette and did some stuff with the background haha. I got a little too carried away so now it's too busy and distracts from the feather, but, hey, I had fun
Sorry a lot of these pictures I sideways- I took them with my phone
Very basic sketch with my some-what reference feather donated lovingly by Hermes
And I was planning on doing a simple, light colored feather with some bright points...
Which quickly turned to this
And ended up like this
With a busy background like this
It's a good thing I was just doing this for fun- only spent like 30 minutes (if that) on it. If I do one that I actually want to sell or turn into a card, I'd have to do a simple background or a simple feather haha
I played with it a bit more and I like this finished product much better! Simpler background brings more attention to the feather
