I normally have multiple paintings on the go and I will do my best to keep one of my current ones up here showing the progress of the painting. If you have any questions on the painting below, the methods/process I use when painting or any of the other works here on my website, please do not hesitate to contact me at:

Brown Pelicans are one of my favourite birds. I usually only get a chance to see them when we visit Florida and I am always amazed how graceful they are in the air for a bird that seems a little ungainly when perched. Here I am showing a nice breeding adult perched in the classic pelican 'beak down' pose they like to hold. This one is based on some wonderful reference photos from Alan Wilson. This painting is 18" x 24" (45 cm x 60 cm), acrylic on hardboard.
