8x10 acrylic inks & washes on canvas board
Available through DPW gallery/auction
Using only subtle washes, I tried to add the shading in the areas of the feathers that would reflect light. And also in the areas where there were some light shadows. The background on this is a very deep, dark green.
These smaller ink/wash paintings have been fun. I find that only certain subjects really lend themselves to this style - at least for my version of the technique. Feathers, I think, are perfect to convey with lines. Also, architectural items.
It occurred to me that this technique is similar to scratchboard, which is something I haven't done in quite some time. Now I have the urge to do another one of those soon!
