Where Eagles Tempt

In Kate Johnson's watercolor pencil workshop, she asks us to try out colored papers. I haven't really used colored paper much for any drawing but after seeing some other people do so very successfully, I thought I'd give it a shot with an eagle feather I found in our yard this morning. It was just fluttering in the breeze teasing me that I haven't been able to get an eagle where I can take a photo of one now that I have a camera that can zoom in pretty well. Ah well, at least I got in some drawing practice if not photography shots.


  1. I am in awe of this drawing - it's absolutely fabulous!

  2. Hi, Timaree!
    I LOVE this drawing!
    I can't believe how much you're doing! I'm so overwhelmed right now & haven't had a chance to keep up, but had to tell you this is wonderful!
    Warmest aloha,

  3. Such grand, glorious birds. Love the feather! I like the colored paper idea. Allows the image to blend into the page rather than having a stark white background. ~Tammy

  4. Thanks for the comment on my blog. I love eagles and hawks and it is a true gift if you find a feather. Love your feather sketch. Wind to thy wings!

  5. It's brilliant Timaree!
    The white stands out so well against the coloured background.
    It's a very clever sketch that I think takes a lot of skill.

  6. Really grate job on the feather! If you come on over and visit Norway I'll take you out so you get to see the sea eagle/white-tailed eagle and the golden eagle.


  7. Thanks everyone for coming by. Ewian, I would love to do that. Too bad I don't have a passport!

  8. WOW! This feather is done so beautifully; with the white on the brown background it almost leaps off the page!


I like being part of a community. Please share your thoughts about my blog with me. Hope you have a wonderful day!
