"Elegance" - FINISHED

Hi everyone!

I have took another break from the lion and have decided to join the insanity crowd by doing and 18x24 lol I know it is not a 24x36 but still it is big for me

Lets see who guesses it first, but unfortunately they are no prizes for the winner

It is back to feathers and from what I have titled the piece it is going to be easy to guess (hopefully). I will post the beginning tomorrow and it will be coloured as it is another bird that will not be done justice in black and white and I may add in a background.

I'm thinking flamingo too. Was there a photo posted? I can't see one.

Elegance? Obviously a vulture or a marabou stork

A turkey but not in the literal sense.

A toucan, of course... [right? ]
[or peacock, tail spread all over the place?]

Re: "Elegance" - WIP

The title has swan written all over it. But Lorna guessed that one first , so she gets the prize (if there was one) . I do love a mystery. Is it a swan ?

Re: "Elegance" - WIP

The game is over!!

Robert got it right with his second guess! Yes it is a peacock but not the traditional pose with feathers all spread out ( I am not that mad) In my opinion peacocks are one of the most elegant and beautiful birds.

Will be posting an update later on.

Re: "Elegance" - WIP

This is where I am at the now. I know it is very little but it took me a while doing the face.

Close up



Full board



I am actually looking forward to the colouring. It is going to be a challenge to get really vibrant colours that peacocks have.

All C and Cs are welcome and thanks for looking!
