Mythical or Mystical! A Quilled Peacock

After a realllly long time I completed a project which I have been planning for quite some time. A quilled peacock.

When I go back and see myself progress from this (A Quilled Feather) to this attempt, I do feel proud.

I am sure I am nothing compared to the likes of Pritesh, Suganthi, ManuK and the likes in quilling delicate pieces, but it has nevertheless been a good journey so far. Hope I grow :) :)

Here are some of the pics of India's National bird perched upon a branch..

I may not have gone for the traditional peacock colors in the true sense. I have played with the shades a little bit. What can I say, everything is fair in Art!

I have used 5 mm strips for the entire project. The leaves were created using tissue paper so that it looks real. I doodled with some quilled leaves for a while but finally decided to go with this approach.

I am not sure if I should have added flowers :( Some said no, some said yes, but finally, no flowers and no messing it up. :) I hope it is a good one.

Size : 50 cm X 36 cm

Should I title it Mythical or Mystical!

There he is...

Perched atop a branch, In full glory, With his beautiful flowy feather 

I couldn't avoid sharing a invert-color that I tried for this. Actually this (eerie-looking) peacock does look nice to me :P
