Peacock Feather

Traditionally the most commonly used support for water colors is paper but other supports include papyrus,bark papers,plastics,vellum or leather,fabric,wood and canvas. I’ve used canvas for this one. I wanted to do a peacock feather because I wanted a challenge with water colors and I thought this would be perfect.

So here it is….the water color peacock feather!!

  1. Its very pretty. Couldn’t have been easy to have that perfect control. I was doing a little watercolours, yday with the boys and understood the challenge of it. This is very pretty! I think perhaps the range of colours could have been richer, like in a peacock feather.

    • yes it is very challenging and i did spend the whole morning on this one….i don’t know how far you can achieve a rich look while working with water colors but i will try….


    Periamma commented that the pecock feather is really fabulous and no other words can match with that
