I had no intention of using her as a subject for my next painting project, but after a few months of scrolling for pictures, I stumbled upon this photo one more time.
I've never used people as subject before. It disheartens me since I really don't know how to sketch a person let alone paint them. But this really challenged me, I've got nothing to lose anyway.

|I think I made her hand a tad bit dark. :P|
It took me about 6 months to finish this, but there was a lot of procrastination and self-intimidation in between.

During the breeding season of peafowls, a peacock exposes his magnificent feathers to seduce the peahen, the peacock with the best display gets the flock of peahens. A bit of trivia: peahens tend to mate with the peacock who has the most eye spots.
It never fails to amaze me whenever I get the chance to witness this courtship dance.

After so many years of not holding brushes and mixing paints, my parents commissioned me back in '09 to make a series of paintings for a space that they bought. The theme was flora, the size of the canvasses 8x8 small. It was also the time that I shifted from oil to acrylic, because of my weak lungs and my concern for the environment.
|This is my favorite among the three|
I didn't anticipate that acrylic paints dry faster than oil, had a hard time mixing and blending. So I did my research, and found out that you need a mister or water spray to keep the paints from drying. Oh well...
