Peacock Face Paint Design Tutorial:

Step 1:

Using a 5/8 inch brush and an purple/blue/yellow colours(yellow becomes bright green next to a blue colour) paint a head, neck and a wing under the eye. With pink/orange/yellow colours mark five lines. All pointing to the middle of your pupil.

Step 2:

With a 5/8 inch brush and pink/orange/yellow colours, go around the lines to paint feathers. With a mix of green and yellow I painted in green dots and pulled thin lines along the middle.

Step 3:

With a thin brush, add white details for the area around the eye, bluedecorations to the head and wing. I also use blue and dark red for painting in details around each feather. For finer details I use a liner brush.

Paint in the eye. Outline with black. Add some black swirls inside of each feather.
