How To Paint A Peacock


Painting a peacock is a very complicated task, mainly because of the distinct patterns on their tail feathers. Of course, this is just a minor obstacle that won’t stop us from painting them. In fact, I’ve worked my way around a few tutorials on how to paint a peacock, and they seemed really helpful. If you’re facing difficulties like me, you too should give these tutorials a try.

To paint a peacock is to make its tail feathers stand out. Hence, all your focus should be on that particular region of the painting. That’s what most people will be attracted towards. After you’re done with the feathers, you can divert your attention to other parts and details of the painting.

Simple drawing peacock

The peacock, also known as a peafowl, is a medium-sized bird that inhabits tropical rain forests with warm climates.

They are particularly known for their distinctively colorful tail feathers, which spreads into a magnificent fan that encompasses the bird’s back and touches the ground side by side.

The extreme popularity and exceptional beauty of peacocks have made this a highly-requested drawing tutorial.drawing peacock in 9 easy steps

So, here we are, we have created a step-by-step tutorial on how to draw a peacock, summed up in 9 easy and quick steps. Each instruction comes with an illustration to make the steps a lot easier for you to follow.

So, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and grab your pen and paper!

What's in this Blog Post

How to Draw a Peacock — Let’s get started!

Step 1peacock drawing step 1

Begin by sketching a perfect circle just slightly above the middle of your paper. Then, draw a tilted W-shaped line to create a feathery texture at the top of the head.

Remember, draw with light strokes when creating outlines and rough sketches. This is to ensure that you can easily get rid of any lines from the outline that you no longer need later on. This also helps keep your drawing refined and neat.

Step 2 — Outline the Peacock’s Head and Bodypeacock drawing step 2

Right underneath the head, draw an elongated shape with a narrow upper part and wider bottom to create the body.

When drawn correctly, the shape of the body should look quite similar to a vase.

Step 3 — Next, Draw Both Legs of the Peacockpeacock drawing step 3

Draw thin legs side by side underneath the body of the peacock. Don’t forget to add a foot with three claws at the bottom of each leg.

Try to make the legs and the feet of the peacock identical as much as possible.

Step 4 — Then, Draw the Wings of the Peacockpeacock drawing step 4

Enclose a curved line on each side of the peacock’s body.

The curved line should follow the outline of the peacock’s body, creating the appearance of a pair of wings perfectly still on the sides of its body.

Step 5 — Afterwards, Draw Half of the Featherspeacock drawing step 5

Now, it’s time to draw the most distinct physical features of the peacock, which is the feathers on its back! It looks especially beautiful when it’s spread apart, so that’s exactly what we’ll be drawing in this step.

Continue by an elongated shape with a round bottom to create the first feather attached on the back of the peacock.

Then, repeat the same steps until there are five feathers side by side. This forms the first half of the peacock’s set of fanned out feathers.

Step 6 — Now, Complete the Fanned Out Featherspeacock drawing step 6

Draw another five feathers on the other side. Keep in mind that all feathers should have the same width and length.

After completing this step, there should now be a total of ten feathers on the back of the peacock.

Step 7 — Add Patterns on the First Five Featherspeacock drawing step 7

The pattern can be created by simply drawing an upside down narrow droplet shape. Then, draw a smaller shape with a similar form inside the one we drew just now.

Afterwards, draw a semicircle within the shape. That’s it! See, the patterns may look complex, but drawing it is as simple as that!

Draw two patterns on each feather: a big one at the top and a smaller one at the bottom. Take note that only the top pattern will be visible on the feathers in the middle, as shown in the illustration.

Step 8 — Next, Add Details on All of the Featherspeacock drawing step 8

Repeat the previous step and keep drawing the same pattern on each feather.

In this step, you should finish drawing the patterns on all ten feathers of the peacock.

Step 9 — Now, Draw the Peacock’s Facial Featurespeacock drawing step 9

To complete your drawing, draw the eyes and the beak of the peacock.

Proceed by drawing two standing oval shapes inside the peacock’s face to outline the eyes. Then, draw two small circles within each eye.

Now, shade the entire eyes except for the tiny circles inside. This adds a dramatic effect and makes the eyes look like it’s sparkling!

To create the beak, simply draw a shape with a pointed edge on the right side and two on the left side.

Don’t forget to add an outline inside the beak to refine the shape and create the appearance of a tongue!

There you have it—you have successfully drawn a beautiful peacock! Now, it’s time for the part that you’ve probably been waiting for, which is filling in the colors of the peacock!

Peacocks typically have iridescent blue bodies and the feathers on their backs are a combination of metallic blue and green hues.

However, there are a few unique species of peacocks that have pink, purple, and other vibrant pigments.

Coloring a peacock will surely be fun because there’s a wide range of color options to choose from.

You can choose to color the peacock using their original colors or use a customized set of colors to create a one-of-a-kind peacock. Either way, we’re sure the colors will turn out beautifully!peacock drawing 9 steps

How to draw a simple and easy Peacock

Easy How to Draw a Peacock and Peacock Coloring Page

Learning how to draw a Peacock gets easy when you start with a step by step tutorial. This one keeps the simplicity without giving up any of the cuteness.

how to draw a peacock

Even though peacocks appear to be very bright in color, they are not as bright as they look. In fact, peacocks are actually brown, and their color often changes due to the reflection of light. That’s the secret of their exquisitely colorful feathers. Every section of a peacock’s feather changes its color when the light strikes from different angles.

This tutorial will show students how to draw a peacock without getting lost in too many details. Those feathers, for instance are incredibly complicated in real life, but a simple petal shape, like those of a flower, do the job just fine. They are radiating out from the peacock body and offer some great radial symmetry drawing practice.

Getting Started with Drawing Guides

The best way to get students off to a good start to any drawing lesson is to show them how to use guides as a reference point.

You may have noticed that all of the tutorials on this site have a dashed line running through the center of each step, in both horizontal and vertical directions. If students make their own centered lines on their own paper, before drawing, they will have an easy reference to follow.

For instance, as seen in Step 1 below, the U shape for the peacock belly centers on the vertical line of the paper, and sits just a bit down from the horizontal one. It’s important to get that shape in a good size and place, before adding the curve of the the peacock’s head and neck above.

Drawing skills are all about getting the size and placement of lines on paper, so having some visual reference point to get started, will always help anyone learn how to be a little more accurate.

So does that mean students need to get out a ruler to draw a big fat line down the center of their paper before they start? Goodness no, please don’t! That will most likely be hard to erase and distract from any finished art. No, simply fold the sheet of paper in half both ways, make a crease, and unfold. The beauty is that by the time the drawing is done and colored in, the creases will disappear.

And now, on to the peacock drawing project.

Peacock Coloring Page


  • Pencil. The Ticonderoga brand are the most reliable, make nice dark lines when you need them, and are the easiest to erase. Buying the pre-sharpened ones will save busy teachers a lot of time.
  • Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tip erasers, especially when erasing leftover pencil lines after tracing.
  • BlackSharpie Marker. These fine point permanent marker pens make nice black outlines, have a good tip for coloring, and never bleed when they get wet. Use them with good ventilation and add extra paper underneath to protect your tables.
  • Prang Crayons. These are a bit softer than other crayons so they sometimes look like oil pastels. They also have a some nice brown shades that Crayola does not have unless you buy their larger boxes.
  • Crayola Crayons. The reliable brand that always works well. The 24 pack has some of my favorite golden orange and yellow colors that seem a bit richer and warmer than the ones Prang has.


Time needed: 1 hour.
