"Mexican Peacock" (complete image)

Title: Mexican Peacock - Medium: watercolour, gouache, and ink on 300 lb (640 gr) paper - Size: 22 x 30 in (56 x 76 cm) - Note: During one my trips to Mexico, I spent some days at a hotel situated at the very edge of the ocean. Surrounding the hotel were lush ponds replete with goldfish. Under the palm trees, peacocks and peahens ruffled their feathers while squawking and screaming. Each day found me in the grounds painting and drawing, rarely pausing for any reason. This work I produced during this time served as the inspiration for this painting.
