Peacock Colors

Uploaded: July 09, 2008


I cloned out the feathers that were on her nose. Also, I want to give Michelle K. credit for use of peacock feathers. Katie say a portrait Michelle did with a peacock feather and wanted to use peacock feathers, so we stopped at the flower shop and picked some up on the way to the photo shoot.

Oh, this is beautiful, Sherry! I've been wanting to do something similar with my daughter! I've always loved peacock feathers. We used to have several as pets when I was a child. We go around picking up the feathers and put them in a vase. What a gorgeous model she is. Really lovely!
