I am a bird lover! I love to be in the company of birds (in the great outdoors) and i love to draw and paint birds. I start off with a complete painting and then embellish with other media. In this piece I actually did the most of the peacock using only a stabilo pencil and white paint. My first try at using the stabilo "marks all" pencil, and I love it!
After the painting was complete, I added white gesso dots, sparkly stickles, a Derwent pencil in "chocolate", gemstones which I gued down using heavy gel medium, and distress ink (to the edges of the canvas.
