What fun I had with these ladies! The background is done with watercolor crayons and pencils. The body is gouache. The jewelry is gouache glazed with Paul Rubens luminescent paint. And...feathers! They are notecards, 5" x 7". I am thinking about combining the ladies together in one single, larger (12" x 16") painting.

Thanks, Bill! The hardest part was gluing on the feathers. They kept sticking to my fingers when I tried to press them down. I finally used the metal handle of a pair of scissors, and that worked much better.
