When my nephew told my sister and me that there was a whole family of peacocks living in a near by neighborhood we grabbed our cameras and went wild, shooting hundreds of pictures, (just so I could get one good shot to paint from out of the whole bunch!). This proud fellow posed beautifully for about 15 minutes.
I so enjoyed painting him. I have a wonderful set of Sennelier Iridescent Pastels that I rarely get to use. But for hummingbirds and this guy, it’s all about the sparkly stuff! Yeah!
