Kristin #86, feather study

This one threw me for a bit of a paper loop. I decided to use the textured side of my canson paper, which I like to paint on, but I wanted to use colored pencil and found that the paper was too rough to pick up the fine details. Anyway I ended up painting on top of the pencil. Lesson learned.

7x9" gouache and colored pencil.

Beautiful feathers. Your art captures both the smooth parts so well and the fluffy parts. Maybe this is the right paper!
