Starting the feather detail

Now comes the FUN part!!! Sort of kidding there. . . . It's kind of like building a very complicated jigsaw puzzle!  I have taken a photo of the taxidermy mount to give you an idea of what I'm talking about.  Lots of colors, lots of patterns all overlapping.  I have a little bit of a break in that this bird is small in the painting - I can get away with giving the impression of a lot of the detail.  If it was a large painting and the bird was front and center up close I would have my work really cut out for me!  The painting shows the detail work I've done so far.
