  • Thank you Carrie – I’m with you – they are the most stunning birds and this is the third time I’ve painted / drawn one. Their colours are so inspirational!!! :)

    beautiful work Karen…we were there recently visiting with my sister …and I am sure I met your Adonis! gorgeous colour and detail!

  • Isn’t Featherdale a fabulous place Linda – very under rated. I always seem to pick up some lovely reference photos there (and I’m no photographer!), but the animals are so accessible. Unfortunately, there was another peacock doing a full on display, except he was too far away and my camera didn’t have a strong enough zoom! :)
