Watercolor Peacocks

Students in grades 1-3 created these realistic watercolor peacocks! We began by drawing out the peacock in pencil step by step. Once the drawing was complete, we outlined the drawing with cool colors (blue, green and purple). We looked at pictures of real peacocks in nature to see the colors and textures of all the feathers. We then painted the peacocks using cool colors, however students could choose to paint the eyes of the tail feathers with a warm color. Last, we stamped lines in the back feathers to recreate the texture of a real peacock.
