A Nib Painting- PEACOCK .....


A peacock -one of the prettiest birds

that graces this earth-

is always a cynosure of your eyes...

No wonder the peacock is given 

the exalted privilege and status of being

the National Bird of our country...

And this is one bird that is always

 the favorite of all artists and craft persons...

and it beautifully adapts itself to any form of art...

paintings...sculptures...embroidery...  more....

Peacock is an All Time Favorite theme 

in all these creative forms...

And definitely one of my favorite themes too...

This Nib Painting shows my pretty 

peacock perched gracefully

on a flowery tree....

This work is done on a black felt cloth

with a special set of nibs -

(the main tool for nib painting)

with oil paints...

The main ingredient for this work 

     is patience and precision...

(oil paints mess up easily and it is

 not really possible to reverse the mistakes)

And the bright green leaves,

shaded pretty pink flowers

 and the tree trunk do provide

 a perfect backdrop

 for this beautiful bird...
