SOLD - Inktober "Peacock"

#Inktober 2017 Day 9

Original unicorn ink and watercolor art

For “Peacock” I was inspired by and used the “Peacock Blue” watercolor pigment by Mission Mijello.

Peacock is also available as a vector illustration on apparel and other products here in my Redbubble shop.

I was excited to see how I could weave Peacock energy into a Uniquorn drawing! So I (obviously) used peacock feathers for the mane and tail - for this one, I did quite a few sketches to work out a complementary pose and feather interpretation. The fade of dark to light watercolor was a happy accident that I "went" with... I initially wanted to make sure I used a lighter wash at the top so that the feathers didn't disappear into the background. Really happy with how it turned out!

Every day of #Inktober 2017 I chose a specific watercolor for my INKspiration in creating a unique unicorn (Uniquorn) illustration. You can find the whole series on my Instagram feed!
