American Woodcock pin-feather painting with gold leaf
An American Woodcock painted with its own pin-feather. The difficulty of painting the American Woodcock with its own very tiny pin-feather can only be imagined!
The background is of the native aspen trees. The leaves of these trees have real gold leaf applied, in four different shades, ranging from 16.9ct to 24ct gold.
