Bull Elk Feather by dittin03 Bull Elk Feather by dittin03
It's been a while since painting an elk, so when I came across an elk photo that my mom took in Yellowstone park, I knew I had to paint him on a feather!

This painting will be for sale here on dA for a limited time. If you are interested in purchasing it, please send me a note! I'll sell the deer and elk paintings together for a discounted price too. If it doesn't sell here by the time I make a trip to a local shop, it will be put up for sale there!

Edit: SOLD


The framed set:

~~~~
Materials:
3 Turkey Tail Feathers
Peacock Wing Feathers
Rooster Feathers
Wooden Beads
Steer Leather Cord
Antler Pieces
Acrylic Paint

incredibly beautiful. the weave of the leather on the bases of the feathers is really fine and wonderful as well.

Thanks! It was fun weaving all that cord. :D It took a really long piece to cover the whole stem of the feathers.

I really love how the antlers span out across all the feathers. It really adds that bit of realism to the painting :)

Thanks! I had to use three feathers just to get those huge antlers to fit in there!

Very nice :clap: I never would have thought that you could paint on a feather. I like the accompanying beads and hoof prints too. Overall, very nice piece.

Thank you! I wish I could have scanned in the frame as well. It really just completes the painting. I am going to try to get a good photo of it tonight though. :)
