I just love watching this fabulous bird! It gracefully glides over the water, dives to catch a fish, then perches contentedly to digest its meal.
What a challenge to paint it, too! This time, I wanted to make the plumage realistic, but not show each feather. The light is important, showing the shadows without hiding the details is a bit tricky!
I hope that you enjoy this portrait of the Brown Pelican and will find the perfect spot in your home for it! Isn't he majestic?!
