Black feathers

Whilst thinking of ideas for ways of doing the sexy picture of Cherrie cavorting in her boa I thought it would make a nicely erotic picture to draw a woman wearing a black feather boa, on a black background, but only capturing the white of her skin through the feathers. I also wanted the solid female flesh as a nice contrast for the softness of the feathers, just picking out the profile of her breast, the curve of her back falling down to her buttocks, a hint of thigh, her arm bent to add to the tightness of the composition. So having done it, I think it works well enough as an image. I love doing these white on black drawings, just picking out the details of light against the pure black of the paper. Not every part of her body needs to be drawn or every feather in the boa for the viewer to understand the picture. Good job - it would be a nightmare to depict every feather in a boa! The picture is called "froth of feathers" although I think the model would call it "spitting feathers" as she said wearing it, was like being attacked by a hundred chickens!!

Cherrie said...

Perhaps your last comment explains why she isn't smiling!

But I love the sensation of the feathers against my skin! They feel so fine . . .

It is a lovely drawing, and the way you carried off the boa was quite effective!

very effective - the flesh emerging from the background. Both image and imagery are very beautiful

Me - thankyou. I love doing these sort of images, and find just using white on a black background to be very dramatic and effective.
