How beautiful are these? One of the elements that can make the art of painting so exciting is the artist's choice of canvas. Ian Davie's decision to paint on swan feathers has given him some major recognition.
Of course, it makes perfect sense that his inspiration stems from his natural surroundings. Whether it be from his home at the heart of the Snowdonia National Park or his trips abroad, Davie's inspiration is never lacking.
It's interesting to note that all of his feathers come from a bird reserve, in which the wardens collect them off the ground. In return, he donates to the welfare of swans.
