Illustrations: peacocks

Fascinated by peacocks for the past few months so I thought I’d post up the work so far to inspire me to finish the journey… some unfinished business with those birdies.  They do present great possibilities for pattern making:peacockstyle lo

And for experimenting in a bit of art nouveau book illustration style, with black and white and watercolour versions… peacock perched peacock watercolour

Aiming to get these or versions of these onto my ceramics in some shape or form – maybe some printed decals to glaze on.
 
Also tried freehand illustrating in majolica on a bowl too, using copper and cobalt oxides, less controllable than pen and ink but a nice effect… more of this to come!

And it all just started with a little doodlebird:peacock doodle
And ended up a very complicated doodle indeed…
