When I saw this gorgeous peacock walking in front of some bright yellow autumn leaves, I knew that I wanted to paint him! This beautiful, colorful bird is a bit of an icon and reminds us of the creativity of beauty in Nature. The blues, greens, and yellows are wonderful together.
Too many years ago, I worked with a young model named Sean up in the Chicago area for a group of paintings that I have in my head involving men with animals. I keep having distractions that have me painting or sculpting other subjects, but I still have this body of work asking me to be born.
To that end, I started this sketch in oil paint on canvas of a peacock to help me think about a color scheme and some possible composition ideas.
