Painted peacocks from real pictures @WBCL

We were so fortunate to have real pictures taken by local photographer Rob White to use as a reference for our painting of a peacock. First we drew the bottle shaped body and painted it with blue metallics. Then the fun began. I asked them to use their fingers to dab in the "eyes" on the feathers so they could paint the detail. Only had one objection so he did his with a brush. we put on plenty of eyes then detailed them, lastly connecting them to the body and adding the crown to the bird. We will be doing one of these at #art camp next week.
