I have been inspired with peacocks lately...not sure if it is the attraction to the iridescent feathers or small size of the painting! This is yet another pastel on suede (has to be one of my favorite mediums/support), size about 5" x 3".
This time, I started with the background first which seemed to work best for me today. I think I will entitle the painting "Crown Jewel" as it seems fitting since the painting is focused on this peacock's beautifuly crowned head. Watch for the next steps as I "crown" my peacock king!
