Peacock Painting

One of my craft goals for 2013 was to create more original paintings – not just painting what people show me how to paint. I’ve been to a lot of wine and painting events, but so far I’ve yet to branch out and do my own paintings…until now.

Well, sort of. I went to another wine and painting class to paint this peacock. And this is what it looked like after the class.

It just didn’t look complete to me. A peacock’s gotta be bold and beautiful…and it’s gotta have purple, of course. So I added in some purple paint and some gold paint as well – both of which I had left over from my Mardi Gras craft. I like the finished product so much better, and I think this is definitely a step in the right direction to painting some completely original artwork.

    I collect outsider art – your piece reminds me of the spirit and colors of that art style. There is a local artist who specializes in peacocks and peahens. Another in chickens. Keep painting!

    Hi Sarah! I am visiting you from our SITS tribe! This caught my eye, as I will be starting an art journal class this weekend, and the thought of paint scares me! I think it will be good and something tells me I am going to love it!
