"Dare Dare", Quick Analysis of a Work of Art:

For this realization, the artist chose to use several shades of brown to give depth to the hairs. She worked in successive layers, going from the lightest to the darkest shades. For this design, several feathers were needed even if only two were placed under the signature. The others were put with the certificate of authenticity.

What's the woodcock painter's feather ?

The painter's feather comes from the wing of the woodcock. It is a small pointed feather in the shape of a spearhead, flexible and rigid at the same time. It is also called a brush or a surremige. In the Middle Ages, it was used to make illuminations. Each nib is unique in the way it behaves and leaves no room for error. Because of its fragility, each quill can only be used for a small area. On each work of art are the feathers that were used to make the drawing.

But, you can also, if you wish, pay in 4 times by checks made out to the ANIMAL ARTIST Laurence Saunois or with Paypal where a payment in 4 times is possible (see the terms)

  • How long does it take to make a drawing with a painter's feather? The realization of a drawing with bird feathers requires time. The drawing is done square centimeter by square centimeter.
