For today’s (and tomorrow’s) painting I decided to really challenge myself trying to master an effective painting of a peacock. This pose is less popular, but I loved the bird against the plant backdrop. I’ve got several paintings actually going at once, and there has been little rest for the weary. But I want to keep up with a daily painting, so I’m staying with it. I’m probably being too fussy with each painting and need to simplify even further. We’ll see what happens.
