Here is a new piece started and you'll see the irony and humor as it develops. It's a 24x18" oil pastel on unprimed wood panel. These are the first layers in a harder oil pastel to block in the colors and values. As the layers are added, the oil pastels chosen will be softer and more oily.
I actually saw this peacock on the very old Ford truck years ago when I was living in Arizona and just loved the foil of the flamboyant, beautiful bird against the ancient, worn out truck.
