Blend 2 - Painted Feather by dittin03 Blend 2 - Painted Feather by dittin03
Second painting in my blended tigers series.

I would have a hard time selling this one if it weren't already sold before I painted it! I'm very attached to my tiger paintings for some reason. I think it has something to do with my very first feather painting being a tiger. :nod:

These paintings are always experiments to see how well I can "blend" the tiger with the feather, painting as few actual orange and black stripes as possible. Almost all of the tiger's upper face is comprised of unpainted feather. I love how turkey feathers look like tiger stripes!

First of this series: [link]

Both of my "Blend" paintings will be offered as prints in the near future. Please note me if you are interested in buying signed prints directly from me!


3 turkey feathers
acrylic paint

I'm amazed that you found a way to use the natural feather and its colors to add to the painting, as if you simply painted around the feather nd gave it a few touches to create this beautiful work. This has become my new favorite of mine. :)

Wow this is amazing I love how you used the feather itself for the stripes but what I don't understand is how do you get the feathers to stay together???
