The Majestic Peacock in a sketch I completed yesterday

Peacock sketch in acrylics on paper, created by Gloria poole in Missouri
Castle Peacock sketch by Gloria Poole; 28-July-2013

This is the sketch I had to send from one of my phone cameras about 4 times because the first two times cyber-criminals tried to intercept it, then the 3rd time, it was "sent" per phone but never appeared in my inbox; and I blogged about it yesterday. So I tried again this morning to send it and it arrived to my inbox.  I drew this in pencils first, then painted it with liquid acrylics and some iridescent paint also.  This is in one of my sketch books. I had a bit of trouble signing my name in acrylics [the ltr G] because the paint had thickened some from setting--had to dilute it a bit, try again. And the full yr of 2013 in the lower right corner didn't quite get in the photo but it's there.

I first saw the peacock with his tail plumed when I visited Scotland yrs ago. I visited one of the castles there and on the grounds of it, were peacocks wandering about. When I saw one up close, I was awed by their beauty and majestic plumes. I named this sketch "Castle peacock".  

Also, fyi: I am the white, single, [divorced twice; with 2 grown daughters] , Christian woman who was born in the state of Georgia; and who lived in several states and even the UK [briefly] while getting credentialed as RN there [ about yr 2001].  Also, I am a University  of Georgia alum [@universityofga; @UGA] and yesterday I drew a  a sketch of the mascot Uga, and put it on my blog at for them to see and the world too. I paint, sketch, and draw and have regularly since about 1993, though I learned mechanical drawing before that.  I also blog, write poems, and photograph extensively.
