To Feather or Not To Feather

The Noah's Ark project is coming along. Right now the peacock is on the work bench and the morning has been spent debating on just how much detail we want to do on it. The peacock will be the anchor piece for the right hand corner of the mural. I have been know to take it over the top from time to time but I do believe that the detail is called for in the tail. The head, neck and body have a layer of dicro as does the center of the eyes in the tail. It is a peacock after all and being over the top is what they are all about. So fine stringers are being broken and applied to give the impression of feathering. I Win! Show off that tail!
