Small peacock study in pastel
I just love the peacock's intense blue feathers and can't think of any better small piece to work on at the moment. I really needed to work on something that would progress quickly to keep my artistic juices flowing (and from getting bored)!
This bird I photographed at one of the campsites we stayed at last August. Very beautifully feathered, but he was unfortunately a pretty nasty bird which actually ended up attacking me by beating his wings at me and stomping his feet and spurs on my arms and stomach. At least I got a few good shots of him before he beat up on me!
