I often find feathers when I'm outside spending time in nature and since I recall I am fascinated about the wonders of birds. Not only are they able to fly, also the beauty of their plumage draws my interest as an artist. This work shows a buzzard tail feather I found in the field. The beautiful coloration was worth to capture it in a Scratchboard. It is definitely a perfect medium to find my limits when it comes to creating highly realistic looking artworks. I used inks in combination with traditional scratching technique and the feather is depicted life-size.
