So this one has been a long time coming! All the paints out of the tin for this one! It took a long time and I was glad when it was done!
First, rough sketches, I liked the idea that the peacocks tail feathers should be flowers.
Next drawing the design out on watercolour paper and the starting to paint.
After a really long time . voila! The Boy of teh bird is ultramarine with a bit of Prussian blue. The tail ( flower ) feathers are Rose madder, Alizarin Crimson, cadmium red and orange and a bit of winsor violet!
There are various superstitions about peacocks read about them here

I have a thing about hares! lots of mythology about them and they are fast! Thsi oen is nearly finished. I wanted to get something of the weather into this one. Also you'll notice my continued love affair with water is still alive and well!
How about this! Katie Brown from East Yorkshire has made a wonderful drawing using one of my designs as inspiration. I love it! Keep up the good work Katie. I really like the composition and the little bugs flying around on the other
