Oh, I really love this one! Exquisite “blue on blue”, this peacock is flirting with you! Just look at those lashes … they are batting away!! Give him a look and he will turn about so that the feathers in his tail shake just a bit. He’s a show-off for sure! What a lady’s man.
The blue feathers with just a touch or red, orange, green, and yellow are fetching, giving the entire painting an overall essence of blue. Tiny brush strokes mark the individuality of each feather, resulting in a lovely blend of detail and background. Depth, tonality, and personality – it’s all here. Man oh man, I love this peacock …oops, I already said that, didn’t I?
