Admittedly, this cocky bird has always been intimidating for me to paint, and I nearly erased my sketch and went for a mermaid instead.
I have an art show at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens next year in March ( unless Covid changes that). My biggest challenge is to get enough nature paintings painted. I have plenty WITH nature... but are more like stories and don't quite have the right vibe. My birds always have crowns, which is already prolly pushing it.
Anyhow, here is my show off peacock. He's got feathered attendants to boss around in there as well.
I bought this cabinet three days ago and tried to have it ready for the Smithfield Autumn Arts Festival yesterday. I was able to get three sides painted, but just couldn't pull off getting the whole thing done in time.
I finished around 1pm today, happy as a clam that it was finished.
