Warm-Up Exercise: Feather

My very first art teacher recommended a feather as a good subject to practice with watercolors and it stuck with me ever since.

It is a very simple subject to start with – simple with just enough detail. And I find it an especially good subject when trying out a loose style.

Here’s a warm-up exercise that you can try using this feather reference photo I found.
