Yes, it is that time of year again not such a special birthday this year ! But, I do have a challenge to show you, I always told people it was impossible to use a pin-feather to paint in oils and it nagged at the back of my mind for many years – was it actually impossible ?
The techniques I learned from using the geese pin-feathers made it possible, I am sure if I hadn’t tried to use the geese feathers I would not have been at all successful.
So, the other day I started a small oil painting with a pin-feather and here is a preview, there is a video of it in progress on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/KW8XH28lTvs.
