These feathers are a follow on from the singular peacock feather. It was a quite a complicated piece to construct as I had to think carefully the order in which to apply the string.
First the background is worked in paper maché and this is then painted in acrylics. I then draw out the shape of the feathers in chalk and the direction the string needs to be. The string is then glued into place. This is then sealed with a product so that it doesn't absorb too much paint. After this process, it's ready to be painted. In this painting I added iridescent medium in the acrylic paint to make it play in certain light just like a real peacock feather.
The painting is framed in a chunky wood, painted box frame and is ready for hanging. To care for your painting all you need to do is run a feather duster over it. (It's not a joke, I'm serious!)
