Illustration Friday - Ghost

Ghost Writer


The hand is watercolor on vellum. I had a very difficult time gluing down the peacock feather. I used gel medium but do not like the result. Spray adhesive may have worked better but I was afraid that I couldn't "control" it. All suggestions are welcomed! Thanks for viewing!

I think it's great that you used a real feather. Nice take on the topic.

Nice background, both the colour and the texture. The feather too is beautiful - it makes the "writing-instrument" great. The hand too - real white, a bit transparent and ghostly.

So I do not agree with youself - great image, you've made!
