Mr. Peacock is shaping up quite nicely. There are no less than 85 handcut pieces that make up this bird portrait and I actually cut that number twice because I make tracing paper patterns first. This is now sealed and awaiting the next step. This is on a 20 by 20-inch canvas so the picture is a little wonky since I'd tried to capture the entire piece in one shot. I'll get a better picture when it's complete.
