A colorful and stylized peacock with paisley patterns in his tail feathers. This colorful peacock bird uses all the colors of the rainbow, with bold golden outlines on his feathers. Drawn with Prismacolor colored pencils on Strathmore drawing paper, 11″ x 14″, 04.17.2017.
This drawing was inspired by many art styles. The bold golden outlines of the feathers was inspired by the cloisonné decorative works, which can be seen in Chinese pottery and enamel works. The abstract designs in the tail feathers were influenced by paisley and mehndi designs, while also preserving the original colors and patterns in the tail feathers themselves, such as the blue “eyespots”. The vibrant rainbow colors were inspired by my own psychedelic style of artwork.
