Magpie Feathers

It has been ages since my last post.  At last a new painting!  This Trio of Magpie Feathers is painted in pure watercolour.  I have donated the painting to the Vernon Public Art Gallery to use in the auction at the 28th Annual Midsummer's Eve of the Arts Benefit Event.

I am really excited about painting feathers right now and feel they suit my style well.  I have some other feather paintings in the works right now, so stay tuned for more.

What kind of bird feather would you like to see painted next?


  1. Peacock with its iridescent eyes. Goose down might be challenging, too, with its chaotic, delicate flairs.

    1. Thank you for your suggestions, yes peacock would be a challenge with all the iridescent colours, especially if they were painted to scale.
