Beautiful Soft Pastel painting of a trio of Pelicans at Sunrise
Pelicans are fascinating birds, they look so ungainly on occasion, but quite often they fly over my home on their way to land at a nearby park. I still find their size quite amazing. They are really, really big birds! and can be a little bit daunting when getting up close.
I have included a photo of the painting in development, building up the colors and finding the colors reflected from the sunrise on the birds, but also reflections back up from their bodies in the early morning sun.
Finished dimensions 39cm x 27cm (A3) or 14.5" x 10.5" approx.
I use only the best quality materials, the paper is Mientes-Tex a pale green sanded paper and the pastels are Med. Soft Rembrandt Pastels and very soft Artist's soft Pastels (AS brand).
