#simplycreate a feather

Step 1

Feather outline

Using the HB graphite pencil, trace the outlines of the nib on a sheet of the sketchbook.

Step 2

Feather filling

Use 3 coloured pencils to create a gradient in the nib. Draw a hatch from the centre of the feather to the edge. Add a few soft barbs to the base of the hollow axis of the feather.

Step 3

Add patterns

 Still, with the same coloured pencils, add polka dots in the centre of the feather.

Step 4

Result and inspiration

Have fun creating other feathers with coloured pencils by varying the shapes and patterns. The sheets of the notebook are easily removable with a simple gesture, do not hesitate to frame this drawing to bring a Boho-Chic touch to your interior.
