I am always fond of peacock paintings.So again this time,I came with a painting of peacock.This is my latest Madhubani peacock design and I have painted this colourful peacock on a yellow handmade paper.The basic design of peacock is similar to my previous(first ever) painting of peacock .This time,I have tried to correct some mistakes that I made in my earlier painting 🙂 .We can say this one is the upgraded version of the last one :-).Here also I have used the same background as the previous one. Also if the background is light, we can use bright colours in our painting.
Materials used here are:-
- Handmade paper
- Acrylic/poster colours
- Paint brush
- Black marker pen
- Carbon sheet
Let’s look at steps now.
The following images show the steps I followed for this Madhubani peacock design are .
1.Trace the design on the handmade paper.First I had made the design on a white sheet .Then directly traced it on the handmade paper.
2.Mark the outlines with black marker pen.
3. Start painting using acrylic/poster colours.I have used here acrylic colours.
As you can notice there are some changes/additions in the design I made at first . 🙂
The last minute changes in the design can be seen clearly here 😉
4. Paint the leaves and branches as shown using green and brown acrylic colours.
5.Borders are done with green acrylic colour and black marker pen as shown below.
6.This is the final stage of the painting.
The painting looks different in each pic. because of the light .
Just a try…. 🙂 , Black and white effect with my phone camera.
