Feather drawing

I’ve been using ink pen and coloured pen brushes as my favourite medium for quite a while now. I use them because they are easy to travel with and clean. However, I’ve decided a change is necessary because change however scary and uncomfortable is necessary for growth.
Today I’m starting a new sketchbook using charcoal pencils just for a change. Let’s see how it goes.

Sketch of the day no 1214 in my sketchbook is of a black and white feather.

If you have been following my art journey for a while now, you may have realised that I love symbols and what what they mean in different cultures. If you haven’t noticed, you have been unconsciously learning about them through the references in my sketches πŸ˜‰

The feather is a symbol of freedom, transformation and of a spiritual journey. As I was thinking of change in my art and my life, I came across this black and white feather on my path, a celestial sign perhaps?
