This Thing With Feathers

Work in progress…

Me: This is going to be fun. ๐Ÿ˜€
Alter Ego: Have you lost your damn mind? Inking those feathers is going to be hell? ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Somehow I always find myself gravitating towards doing something involving feathers. I wonder if that means anything. Either way, once again, I’ve got my work cut out for me. Much of this has been inspired by Japanese and Chinese paintings which I’ve always had a fondness for. In the past I’ve been curious to see if I can achieve the same sort of delicate elegance with pen and ink pointillism like that of brush painting. I guess this will be the drawing where I’ll test my curiosity.

  1. Well, feathers frequently symbolise spirit and air, so maybe you need them to lift yourself up? A few years ago I had some pain in my shoulder and imagined that I had wings – and the pain went.

    1. Funny how it never crossed my mind to actually look into what being drawn to feathers in my life might symbolise. I tend to only look into the symbolism of things that frequently pop up in my dreams, never thought to look into the symbols I frequently gravitate to in my art. I really have something to ponder now. ๐Ÿ˜Š
