Hey Friends, Yep, I got 'er done. This is the Peacock I started last week. It's on a canvas panel and painted with acrylics. I used some of Golden's crackle paste in the corners.
Our closest neighbor has an exotic farm and I have taken photos of most of his critters for reference when painting. I say exotic 'cuz they don't have the usual farm animals. A couple years ago another neighbor told me they were getting a giraffe ! Haven't seen one yet so I guess it was just a rumor. AND their noisy peacock isn't this pretty. It's pretty raggedy.
Now I think I shall add Peacock No.1 to my Etsy shop instead of taking it to the Gallery.
