It’s February Feather Friday…..Tutorial #2……
A continuation of the excellent tutorials begun last Friday by the very talented Lisa Calle. This feather style is the “hook” feather, a bit more casual in feel and, just maybe, a bit easier to “grab” on to. As demonstrated by Lisa, the technique is a lot more relaxed (even though the 60 degree “rule”, where the plume attaches to the spine, is still in place, the outer curve allows for a bit more freedom in its formation. I do hope you are able to follow along and take some minutes each day to “cement” the eye/hand coordination and the sound of your machine into your brain’s “memory bank”. And, once again, at the risk of redundancy, I’m sending along these time worn words as a reminder: practice, practice, practice as there is no substitute for time spent playing at the machine!!!! Now, off to the machines AND relax & enjoy the process!!!!!!!
Hi all, its that time again….. today’s feather is the hook feather! Remember to practice …. doodle, doodle , doodle!!
In hindsight, I am quite happy with how my feathers turned out. I like all of you might be too hard on myself. Keep at it… once done, walk away and then come back. I was impressed with mine after a short time away. 🙂
