How to Paint Birds, Eggs, Feathers & Nests

Step-by-step acrylic painting techniques and symbolism
to inspire personal meaning & art-making

There is something special about birds – full of wonder, flight, freedom… An egg is a symbol of hope and possibility. Feathers speak of spirituality, and nests of the nurturing comfort of home. There is also something special about being able to paint these as symbols of our personal story.
