Light as a Feather

coloured pencil

A feather I found, probably a wood pigeon's.  I love to draw feathers, I have a collection ready to be sketched.  This one I did on black paper to show up the white.
I have been having problems all week with my modem, hopefully next week I can get a new one up and working.  There hasn't even been time to finish some of the things I like doing, like the Monthly Sketch Project.

Fantastic! Ultra-realistic it is, and I really like the white on black. Good luck with your modem.

Beautiful detail. You have a great eye and talent to reproduce with such exactness.

This is absolutely beautiful - amazing how you captured the lightness the strands, the wispy character of the feather. Wow. If I could draw them like that, I'd like to draw feathers too!
