The Phunky Peacock

I decided to draw/paint a peacock  for my art project, for the 2nd benchmark quarter. At first I was not sure what I wanted to do for my art project. I wanted to do something really colorful but simple at the same time. Less is more! I am into nature a lot like trees, animals, insects etc...

I wanted to create something no one really thought about so, a peacock came to mind. I always wanted to draw a peacock, they're really pretty and odd to me. The feathers of a peacock are beautiful, they green, the blue, the yellow just blends in together. You really don't know how pretty a peacock feathers are until they spread them out. Usually the male peacock  do that when they're mating to try to attract females.

One day I was in the art room during a free period and I starting drawing a peacock just for fun and it actually turned out to be pretty decent.  Even though it started out as something I was doing just to pass time, it came to be something really elegant and pretty. I take pride into my painting, I worked hard on drawing it the  right way, tracing lines, and trying to stay inside the lines. I contributed to my painting in and out of the classroom.
