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.
