First Feather


I just couldn't wait any longer - the horse went on hold for an afternoon and I drew/painted this using very sharp pencils and a brush with about three hairs in it. Great fun but not as perfect as I would like, but I guess you can't run before you can walk with things like this! The drawing is about two inches long, slightly bigger than the actual feather.

Now back to the horses as commissions are starting to stack up - woo-hoo!

It's really lovely. Nothing at all to be ashamed of. Lovely intense colour. Should be framed though to get the full effect. :-)

Mind you the woman had probably been drinking :-) x x x
