Quilled peacock

I used an embroidery pattern for this peacock.   I struggled a lot with the colours and the technique at first once I was done I was amazed at the three dimensional effect of the peacock design. The green layered wing is an after thought. This is a request from one of my favourite customers . She suggested the peacock idea along with the name . .The flowers were made mostly to fill the space in between the name and the peacock. I used 5mm for the peacock and 3mm for the flowers.
