Preening Macaw


Preening Macaw, (Blue and Gold Macaw) Acrylic on 1.75" x 13.25" blue and gold macaw wing feather

I knew what this feather was destined for the moment I got it and cleaned it. I love the dreamy look parrots (and most birds) get when they are preening their feathers and tried to convey it on this feather. One of my larger feathers for sure, despite being less than 2" wide where I painted it.
