Patricia's Hand Painted Feature Wall (with updates)

Dont you just love this feature wall...All hand painted and wonderfully done!

Wondering where i picked this picture from? It was a feature wall in Patricia's previous home. I was hoping to write about hand painted feature walls but then decided to dedicate a post to this fabulous wall art

Colours used

Work in Progress
The peacock was painted free hand.. most of the borders were done with normal water based paint for walls... The peacock was done using acrylic.. and shadings were done with pencil, pastels and crayon!!

All done...Beautiful feathers!
