I am excited to share my DIY watercolor feather painting that I created yesterday. Painting is very relaxing and cathartic for me and I am by no means an artist! Using watercolor paints is a lot easier than you might think, and I highly encourage everyone to give it a try. Last year I was encouraged by THIS post that gives step-by-step painting instructions. I haven’t stopped painting since! (This post contains affiliate links.)
Using a pencil, I drew an outline of a feather. Yes, my feather obsession lives on. I chose paint colors from the palette that I thought would look pretty together. Blues, grays and turquoise. My inspiration piece was my antique inkwell and a found feather.
This painting took just about 15 minutes to create. One discovery I made, if I think I’ve made a mistake I just add more water to blend the paint. My supposed mistake disappears.
Wouldn’t it be awesome to find an actual real feather like this?
Remember the paper feather garland I made a couple of weeks ago? I used one of the templates for this painting.
Again using the same color palette I blended the watercolors until I was happy with the painting.
The painting looks pretty hanging above my desk on my inspiration board. Here’s how I made this weathered wood memo board.
Do me a favor and treat yourself to some watercolor supplies. They aren’t very expensive and you will hopefully find it as relaxing as I do. Feel free to share your creations!
