Process: Building Up Color

In the video below, I'm working on the peacock painting, which I've tentatively given the title: "From Flannery's Flock." I'm slowly building up layers of color. It's a relatively tedious process to get the birds to look three-dimensional, but one I enjoy.

Just below the video is a photograph of the progress so far....it's not a fantastically lit picture and doesn't reveal the detail as well as it might. However, it does show the progress related to building color and detail, layer by layer. Incidentally, the "canvas" is textured upholstery fabric, so the ripples you see are not an illusion.
