Acrylic Painting Lesson

AH so many feathers!! This week I’m walking you through the process of painting all of those feathers.

I’m working on a Fredrix Convexo Canvas and using Liquitex basics and Liquitex heavy bodied paints.

My reference photo is the first that I’m providing to you guys for hitting our latest goal! It is attached to this post 😀
