The shenanigans hereafter

"peacock" (unfinished) acrylic wash & ink on canvas 8" x 16"

The site was down...stupid hackers. There was garbage embedded on here but I think we are finally up and running with no malware or other stupid flashing links that I didn't post myself on this site. Bothersome, but no permanent damage.

So....peacocks, and with NO red outline. Weird, huh? Well, weird for me. I love using a red outline for my work, but I thought I would try something different with this one. I've done more work on this piece since I took this photo yesterday. The peacock is colored in now and there is lovely ink detail on it's tail...I'm just trying to decide if I want to leave the background so simple or not. And there might be some red outline added, but I'm going to try really hard not to. I think there might be at least one more peacock painting coming. I've had some other ideas while painting this one...nothing concrete yet, but some interesting images I'm toying with. It's a pretty stellar way to spend a Friday night I think...and a great way to end a good week!

Happy Friday.

P.S. If I don't post the finished picture of a painting on the blog here....it's posted in the gallery section under '2010 works'.
