Peacock automaton

This 20 minute painting was completely inspired by another kind of art - very intricate metal sculpture. To be even more specific - a tiny clockwork automaton made over 100 years ago by Faberge as part of one of his amazing eggs. As I was drawing this from a photo I realized how intricately detailed it was. Just gorgeous. Pen and watercolor, 5 1/2" x 5 1/2".
