Bald Eagle Portrait Feather

Bald Eagle Portrait, Acrylic on 2" x 8.5" Eastern Wild Turkey tail covert feather

I have had this lovely turkey feather for some time, but struggled a bit with subject matter. The lovely barring and dark color meant that a dark or brown colored subject would not contrast well with the feather. In the end I decided to paint a bald eagle. These birds have an immense fierce pride to them, but at the same time I also know how goofy looking fish eagles can be. I hope I captured a bit of both in this painting!
