Paintings on the swans feathers of Jan Davey (Ian Davie)

British artist Ian Davie (Ian Davie) draws very beautiful paintings depicting birds and butterflies, fish and animals, flowers and trees ... Only he does it not on paper, cloth or glass, but on the snow-white swan feathers that he collects every year during molt these graceful, majestic birds.

So, Jan Davey's favorite trick is “widescreen” pictures that stretch into several feathers. They also look where they are more successful than "usual" vertical works, and it is more interesting to draw them. For drawing on feathers, the author uses special water-based acrylic paints, which do not damage feathers, dry out quickly and adhere well to the surface of the pen. Probably, the experience gained by Ian Davey over the years as a taxidermist. You will not believe, but the 45-year-old painter has been painting only the last 5 years. Before that, the master confesses, he never took a brush and paints in his hands. But here, it happened ... Jan Davy spied on the way he painted feathers in New Zealand, where he went to rest on one of his vacations.There, he was lucky to meet not only the art of the Maori people, but also his future wife Tracy.
