Pelican

8x10 oil on gessoed Masonite

I enjoyed painting this one because I love pelicans.  The phalo and ultramarine blues mixed with yellow ochre provided the the incredible colors of the gulf.  We have enjoyed watching the pelicans roost in the mangroves with their babies and fight for the fish that fishermen throw out while cleaning their fish.
