View Full Version : Another feather, Timberwolf

Here's another peacock feather, this time with a timber wolf... trying to improve fur texturing and overall appearance. I didn't get his eyes quite right...too wide, he looks rather shocked! LOL
Background in Photoshop.

He does!:)
It is very interesting art. I would never think about using feathers for the painting. I like it very much .

I think I like this painting better then the fish but I like the background you used with the fish better. Your eyes must be killing you!:eek:

WOW! Absolutely stunning! I thought the fish was great and here we have a dog too. Your work is amazing and I envy you the wonderful eyesight you must have. Keep them coming.
Jacko. :clap:

The work is nice...and shows great control of the brush. I wonder how you mount it. The eyes are fine....

I recently mounted three for a wedding gift in a large shadow box ( see http://featherlady_99.homestead.com/pnw.html ), mainly because Aaron Bros. was afraid to touch it. I strung clear filament through the back of the feathers, through the stems, and tied them in place through tiny holes in the matt board that wouldn't be visable once framed. LOL, necessity, the mother of invention and all! I'm going to explore other means and see what works best.

:) Nice to see another featherpainter. How long have you been painting on feathers? I'm fairly new at it and find it fascinating! Barb

Wow! Featherlady this is incredible!! I am new to WC and did not see the other featherpainting that the others are talking about. I would think congatulations are in order for this work! I cant even begin to imagine using a feather as my canvas. How does one do the brushstrokes without the feather'hairs'moving away from you??

I've never heard of featherpainting before but if it was done here I would imagine that it would be used for the tourism industry. I know that if I saw a feather with a painting on it over there, as a tourist I would buy it if I could afford it. Just gorgeous painting methods by the way, nice work. :D :D :clap:

Oh my, your featherpainting is wondrous. I think this is a very original and facinating. How long does it usually take you to complete a featherpainting?

Hey featherlady. That is awesome!!! I've never seen feather painting before, but I'm hooked. I want to try it! Where can I find more info on this?

I live by a park that is full of goose and duck feathers (and crap...hehe) and could be set with feathers if those kind work.

Please let me know! Thanks.

This thread made my curiosity check out your website. Very impressive work!! What an ingenious idea to use as a canvas!! I think you may inspire others to try!:) But you never did tell me how you keep the feather hairs from moving as you paint??

01-14-2002, 08:32 PM
wow this is remarkable, how on earth do you keep the feather from separating when you are painting - mike:clap:

This is very facinating and original artwork. Once again fabulous.

12-28-2002, 05:23 PM
Your work is amazing to me, I am really interested in trying my hand at this for hubby's den. I just don't have a clue as how to start or what to use on them so start. Any help would be appreciated.

What a lovely piece.
I'm going to have to find your other one :)

Last year,?, when I was watching the Halloween Holiday Monster Movie Fest on AMC they showed old newsreel like stuff in between the old timey bmovies. One of the segments was on an older lady who painted on spiderwebs. Not kidding!! It was really neat. Since then I have tried to get more information but cannot find anything about it. Not even from AMC.

The painting is nice. I used to collect feathers because I thought they were all beautiful on their own.

there really are a good number of feather painters out there. An interesting ground.

Here is a web page about feather art. Has a large link section at bottom.


Would still like to know how it is done though.

This is amazing! I think this is the first feather I have seen of yours; I couldn't believe my eyes! How unique, well done and interesting!!!!!

Is it hard to do? How large are the peacock feathers you paint on? Where do you get the feathers?

Simply wonderful!
