Large Luminous Peacock

I never feel like I can do peacocks enough justice, they are trully incredible, which is why I have again painted yet another peacock. The hens aren't getting much love from me at the moment, I guess they are somewhat overshadowed  I'm sure to get to them soon.

I chose to lay bright inks down in the background, before propping my work up on an easel and using gravity and water to bleed the pigments into one another, creating these translucent streams of colour. 

This is the largest peacock I've painted, A3 in size and is available in my shop, see my other peacocks from previous posts
