#Day 9 Pressure changes 1/2

I've been busy busy busy, so I did not have a lot of time, but managed to find some to paint these. I found it challenging at first but when I started envisioning painting "feathers" it got a bit easier. I am not sure why. Maybe it is because I'm envisioning something concrete?
