The night of thousand stars... Mysterious secrets are hiding in darkness..
The raven painting on a raven feather^^ _ _ _
Painted by acrylics and tempera paints on the feather of a raven. Feather size 21x4 cm Big thanks to the Help Center for the birds of prey and owls in Novgorod. They gave me this beautiful feather^^ I was waiting so long for this bird will moult <3
And the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door; And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming, And the lamp-light o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor; And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor Shall be lifted - nevermore!
This piece is beautiful. The details on the raven are truly amazing. You're very good with using paints, I must say. The way you use tones and mix colours works out very well, and I still can't get my head around how much skill it must take to be able to paint something such as this on a feather. The background is beautiful too. I love nigh skies in pictures/paintings, and you've painted a night sky very well! The stars are lovely, and the mix of different colours really give it that pure, dusky effect. I also like the shadowed objects in the background, it adds that little bit extra to the painting just to give it that finishing touch. I enjoy looking at your paintings and I'll look forward to seeing more. Brilliant job!
