Painting a Peacock

PeacockThere’s little reason to wonder why peacocks are a popular art subject, but I have never found an approach that I liked until I saw this layout at That Artist Woman’s blog. I love that you can easily see the face and feathers. I also tried finishing it off with a silver Sharpie marker for some added shine. Thanks Gail!


Oh, and because I have a few kinder and 1st graders in this afterschool watercolor class, I offered a cardboard head template as shown to get them off to a good start. The lovely feather designs were all left up to them.
