Productive Evening

Got a lot done tonight! Thought I had finished two paintings, but I just decided only one is really done. The other still needs some work.

Here’s the one I love & is officially done!

A Peacock Feather in Progress

I finally started a peacock feather painting that I promised a friend for her birthday back at the beginning of August… First I was planning to do an entire peacock so I sketched that out:

But I didn’t love it… Looked too much like a chicken, so I went hunting on Google for inspiration & I found it.

I thought orangey yellow would complement the greens & blues of the feather. Next, I dove right in and here it is:
