30 paintings in 30 days #22

Precious the Peacock 9x12 watercolor

The Kingwood Center's blue shouldered Peacock.
What a challenge to get the colors right. I pulled out  every blue I had! Amazing how so many colors are the same with a different name. Antwerp,Peacock,Thalo,Turquoise, Manganese, Cerulean all seem to be variations on a theme. I know they have different qualities such as transparencies, or sediments, and I could not tell you what is what in  the painting as I  used all of them, clean and mixed..a very interesting experiment in blues.
