I've been working on some birds lately, and of course peacocks were on my list. Here's a piece I call
peacock garden. I didn't want to do the typical open tail peacock painting (even though, I think the feathers are probably the most glorious part of the bird). So, I had to find a way of keeping the flare of the peacock without its iconic tail. I found a stencil while ornament shopping back in December, that I knew I wanted to implement into this piece somehow. The "moorish" type tile design stencil was a great solution to emulate the eyes of the birds tail (so i think), while also providing some kind of environment.
Thanks for looking!
