Finished Peacock Tree

Watercolor & acrylic ink on paper. 9 x 12 inches
Click on the image to see it BIGGER
I love this stage, with just a couple of colors in.
Sometimes I'm just tempted to leave it like that.
But then I just go for it.
And Voila!
It will be available as a large print
in my shop next week.
I'm thinking of printing it on
Amate paper,
I need to make some tests this weekend.
I'll be back Sunday to celebrate my Dad :)

This is beautiful! I am a huge admirer of your work. I love everything you do. Could you tell me how you get such sharp edges on your work.When I paint I feel like my edges are always soft and it annoys me. Would love to hear how you do it.

I love the painting...and I agree I think the first stages are great too. If you left the colors and just finished the peacocks in black ink... I think that would look equally as amazing.

Hi Geninne. I am so inspired by your work. Our styles are pretty similar and I am incorporating more white outlines into my work. I am so curious what you do...is it acrylic over your watercolors, colored pencil...? Also do you use masking medium? Your lines always look so crisp!

Well here I am~ a day late and a dollar short. I just found you. I feel like I hit the jackpot. What beautiful work. I too would like to see the process of one of your paintings. You mentioned water colors and acrylics. What type of paper? What do you draw your working pic with? Pencil? And how do you get the white on the ends of the feathers? eeeeek..sorry, I'm just so impressed and loving it. Are your flowers layered with watercolor? Oh, I hope you'll be able to answer. Thank you so much.
xos,
janet
