Leonardo, Age 7

  • Drawing
  • Acrylic and pencil on paper
  • A4 portrait

Leonardo has always been inspired by nature. During lockdown, unable to buy a card, he knew he still wanted to do something special for Mother’s Day. He spent time in secret drawing and painting this picture of a peacock, choosing the peacock as he knew it was his mummy’s favourite colour. He spent time on the eye, the details in the feathers and perfecting his composition, cleverly capturing the turn of the peacocks head. Leonardo is very happy using mixed media and for this piece used acrylic and pencil to perfect his design.
