Thank you, Tangerine for the great photo references and for hosting. I loved this picture of the peacock. I live in RI and loved also your boats picture....one of them named "Beachcomber" brought back found memories of my early twenties as it was a weekend night spot.... !!! :)
This is 9 x 12 on Arches 140 lb paper,and as usual, I lost track of the time since it was sketched one night and then painted another. Probably no more than 2 hours though. I thought it was done but the bird blended in to the bg so I added some orange and it did the trick which I later noticed was the challenge. :lol:
