Everyday in May # 14 feather

A very fluffy feather. I ran out of watercolour paper so painted this on the inside thin separating wood used in cigar boxes, so no I didn't paint the wood. I'd forgotten how absorbent it is, but this was fun.

Acrylic and watercolour on cigar wood  10.8cm x 19cm


  1. You really used the wood's surface to your advantage! I went to school with some people that went bananas over cigar boxes for painting but they gessoed the surface. This and the butterfly are lovely.

  2. Incredible must smoke a lot of cigars. lol

  3. Looks so soft and beautiful. Great idea to paint on cigar wood. Gives it a special appearance. :)


Thanks for your comments everyone!
