Finding a feather

sketch of a featherI found a Sulphur Crested Cockatoo feather on one of my morning walks. As I carried it home to draw I was wondering if there was a little sketching project about found objects. I walked up the hill to our home I realised most of Canberra is suburbs and probably the most interesting thing to find would be the odd dead shopping trolly but the idea may have some merit so this morning I am pondering…

This sketch was done in a Strathmore mixed media sketchbook which is 5.5 in x 8.5 in (14 x 21.6 cm) using artist pitt pens, Derwent watercolour pencils and watercolour paint as one of the daily prompts provided by a facebook group called A sketch a Day .

    I love your feather, especially all the detail tendrils. Your background really makes your pale feather pop.
