Another Beach Scene - Pelican

This one I decided not to do a pen and ink so instead used pencil to lightly draw my pelican.  Then proceeded with painting.

Although I used pencil, I'm proud of myself because I didn't do any erasing to correct.  I almost ran out of paper surface though in judging height but managed to just barely fit him in without cutting off his legs. 

The Handbook sketchbook

#8 Round, 1/2" Flat, and the Terry Harrison Golden Wizard brush

Colors:  DS - RS, BS, New Gamb, Col Blue, Fum, Cer Blue, and Quin Rose.  The black is Indigo.

Looks like he's singing and dancing.

Uh ohhhh..........I just took notice to a big goof.....................my horizon line is smack dab center splitting my painting in two equal halves ............ for shame!!!!  :-D

Love these new shore pieces, Susan. True, you did split the paper in half, but your center of interest is right where it needs to be! Nice paintings!

I wouldn't have noticed the horizontal split . Actually, it seems to balance with the vertical line made by the book center. The bird pose is amusing. Love it!

This is Wonderful!!!. I love your pelican, what a happy pose you have him in. Ditto Joyce's comment about horizontal split.. I didn't notice either, because the picture is so great..

Sandy, Joyce, and Pam.........thank you each. I'm relieved to hear that goof doesn't take away from the overall feel and scene. I can't help smile when I see this guy. It wasn't my intention to make him look like he was dancing. I guess it just happened with the placement of that one leg.........lol.
