Sketch for new peacock painting, it’s tricky to try and think about mood and themes for such a simple subject…
Think I’m going to try and concentrate on the patterns, textures and shapes rather than any grand concept, although I would like it to have a calm, flowing and harmonious feel to it. Not totally sure on the background and colours yet, that will be tomorrow’s experimenting job!

So am fully back home now all ready to crack on with some brand new projects!
Started this peacock painting project about a year ago and got shamefully behind on it during my 3rd uni year so I think now is the time to take it up again: https://sarahkirk.wordpress.com/2010/07/25/peacock/
Am also very excited about the new House of Illustration/Folio Society book competition, last year’s was ‘The Outsider’ by Albert Camus and I never managed to finish it completely. 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!

Well with moving back home and everything I have been really slack with the illustration stuff recently. Just started doing a little project for my mum, thought I’d do it on a peacock as I’ve never really drawn one before and they’re so interestingly patterned…!
Also I never uploaded the image of my finished red cardinal painting so here it is……..
