Since ‘my’ pelican friend so graciously posed for me, I will be painting a series, though probably not all at once. I have my eye on a few other subjects.
I spent a lot of time on this painting. Not having to break my neck to do a painting a day, I allowed myself to add in his surroundings. (Sorry, pelicans look like guys to me…ha!) I also wanted to be sure it looked like the bright sunny day that it was.
Below is the full painting, which I have come to like. I did not like the huge shadow in the bottom right, so preferred the cropped version. In the end, I wanted to show both.
Which do you prefer?
