peacock feather canvas

i started a large canvas several days ago.  i had no idea where it was going to go, as most paintings i do are based on what it feels like as i go.  i started with just colors and shapes, and then sprayed india inks on the still wet acrylics.  i love the look it gives.

then i started dripping watered down acrylics

and added more layers of drippage with india inks and then a white drippage layer with watered down acrylic

it then told me what it wanted to become, i did a quick sketch and it came to life this morning

not sure if this is the end result or not.  it may need a few more tweaks, but i will sit with it for a while.

update to add a small change to the canvas.  i surrounded the small circles with the dark blue

until later,
