Pelican

I spent some time working on the palm leaves and now have moved down to those feathers.  I have spent quite a lot of time on them.  Just couldn't seem to get things moving in the right direction.  Here is a photo of the "photo" of the feathers I'm trying to reproduce in the painting.
It's those soft, gray feathers that I'm stumbling on....they are so subtle and soft...barely there.
I finally think I have a handle on it...just getting started, laying in some values and then I'll start "picking out" individual feathers to add some shape and depth.
I order and received a tripod for my camera....so I am going to start experimenting with shooting some video while at my easel.  If all goes well, I may have something up on Utube in the next few days....fingers crossed!!
