Feathers Wallpaper

I have been collecting feathers for years, I had ideas about mounting them with a little label as to what the bird was, or where it was found. As most of them were pigeons I thought of a little label under each just saying “pigeon”

In the end, I found scanning a selection of the most patterned ones meant I could immortalise them without worrying about how to frame them.

Changing the scanning settings meant it was possible to refine the areas that were captured so that a reasonable amount of detail was kept without the image being unnecessarily complicated.

I kept the colours to a natural palette, maybe I can revisit them later and make them more colourful…
