To create a muster of peacock paintings - in vibrant alcohol inks - later to be the inspiration for a series of large oil paintings

The Peacock Project...to create a muster of peacock paintings!

For this stage of the project, I would like to create as many alcohol ink paintings of peacocks as possible...why you ask?

Aside from the fact that peacocks are awesome (and one of my favorite subjects to paint), I would like ultimately to build a portfolio of large (36" x 36" or bigger) oil paintings of peacocks in order to seek gallery representation.

My plan is to base the larger oil paintings on vibrant, loose, and far more spontaneous alcohol ink paintings - that's where this stage comes in! The more ink paintings I have to refer to, the better!

This is my 2nd Kickstarter project - the first was 50 Ink Animals in 50 Days - here's a brief video of the results - (originals were 4" x 6")

While I limited myself to just two peacocks in the 50 Animals project, the sky's the limit for this one!

I am looking for funds for painting supplies, especially a set of new inks! Also included are matting and shipping costs.

The rewards are straightforward and peacock-themed, not surprisingly!

For $20, there is a boxed set of 8 5" x 7" Flat Note Cards and Envelopes of my favorite peacock painting (so far), Peacock II:

Peacock II, original 20" x 26"
Peacock II, original 20" x 26"

The remaining levels feature original alcohol ink paintings in various sizes. All paintings will be matted, but unframed.

At the $25 level, there are mini peacocks - 3" x 5" (actual mat opening 2 5/8" x 4 5/8") matted to 5" x 7" - selection made by the artist.

The remaining levels are also for original paintings of larger sizes, matted and unframed as noted. Selection for the $55, $125, and $250 levels will be made by the backers in a first claimed basis once the images are complete and backers are notified via kickstarter email, with the exception of the Early Bird.

For each of the levels, I have included 1 Early Bird painting - a cool bonus as not only is the price discounted, but the Early Bird also gets first choice for the size category.

Golden Peacock - A more subtle option, 8" x 10", available

Sizes are:

  • 5" x 7", matted to 8" x 10"  - $55 ($50 Early Bird)
  • 8" x 10", matted to 11" x 14" - $125 ($120 Early Bird)
  • 11" x 14", matted to 16" x 20" $250 ($225 Early Bird)

All the rewards above are listed to arrive in March - but if you'd like to make a Valentine's Day gift or have a special occasion before March ($20, $25, and Early Birds, only) - please let me know!

Thank you so much for your consideration of this project! For more information about me or alcohol inks, please visit: www.karenwalkerart.com

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The biggest risk in this project would be completing the paintings in time should there be higher than anticipated response. I believe that I have mitigated that risk by limiting the number of larger (and more time consuming) ink paintings.

As this is my second Kickstarter project, I feel comfortable with the process and am happy to report at all of my prior rewards were delivered on schedule.
