Start by sketching your peacock onto the canvas with a light pencil. This will help you to get the proportions and placement of your peacock right before you start painting.
Next, start painting the body of the peacock with a light blue color. Once the body is painted, start adding in the details of the feathers. Use a variety of colors to create a realistic looking peacock feather.
Finally, paint the peacock's tail. Use long, sweeping brushstrokes to create a beautiful peacock feather tail.
Now that your peacock is painted, step back and admire your work!
