something to be proud of! ;-)
Thanks JC – I think I am actually :)
great detail, fabulous painting of such a majestic bird!
Thanks Linda I tried to capture his majesticness (if thats a word!)
it is now :-)
I love the way you portrayed the feathers. How did you do it?
Thank you starbuggirl (interesting name by the way!)Funny, I can’t always remember how I did something but I know I started with a faint outline of each feather – not too precise – then checked when the colours changed to allow for the feathers to fold around the wings, then painted – my brush wasn’t to small and some effects were achieved wet in wet. – hope that helps?
Haha…yes, the name is quite unusual, too long to explain on a comment!! Thanks for explaining that, it would be good to use for future reference, when I paint feathers (if I do!). :D
Go on, you know you want to
beautiful, the eye is stunning!
Thank you again Linda – I was quite proud of his eye I must admit!
Wow, gorgeous work!
Thank you Laura:)
