Illustration Friday: THEORY

Ok...this is what happened, 
let me explain:
When I saw today's Illustration Friday word "Theory"
the first thing I thought of was the color theory
and the famous color wheel
...the color wheel reminded me of
peacocks of all things,
and that how I ended up with this illustration!
Thanks for stopping by,
It's always a pleasure havin' you here :)

A beautiful fellow, "In Living Color"-- & color theory was a clever take on the theme.

My theory is you're "Proud as a Peacock" over this illustration and that's why you've posted it. Which you should rightfully be as it's simply stunning, bravo!

Great idea. The fanning tail does look a little like a Pantone book. :)

Hi Gennine
So do tell (please) - what's illustration Friday? I've just had a peep at your boys pics and they are just so lovely.

I'm a newby blogger (can't you tell?) Your peacock is great too.

Will be back to visit some more for sure.
