Peacock Painting Design

Sketch for new peacock painting, it’s tricky to try and think about mood and themes for such a simple subject…

Current Projects – Peacock Painting and Folio Society Competition 2012

So am fully back home now all ready to crack on with some brand new projects!

This year we have Angela Carter’s ‘The Bloody Chamber’ which luckily I not only own but also have already done a project on it! How useful!
