Steve White is from the Hertfordshire countryside - a local by heart & soul.
Painting on natural materials such as feathers and bark is a big challenge as there is no room for mistakes but is very rewarding and allows me to use natural materials to create my paintings.
The process begins by sourcing and selecting suitable feathers, washing and sterilizing them, thus readying them for mounting on a suitable backing.
Arranging the feathers ready for painting and selecting a suitable subject. Most of my paintings are in Acrylic or oil paints and the whole process can take many hours depending on the complexity of the subject. I finally finish the piece with a protective varnish coat and mount in a suitable frame.
