I participated in the 2014 Western Art Scholarship with this piece and I won an honorable mention. This was my first time working with watercolors on such a large scale.
After I finished painting I took the work into Photoshop for retouching. I added a few effects and more detailed textures on the feathers to make them stand out a bit more.
Overall I really enjoyed this work. It allowed me to be a bit more spontaneous, as I am usually a conventional type of person.
