Beautiful Pelicans in Pastel
This painting was a commission for a friend,
It was based on one of my earlier images and set in Lakes Entrance. A place that my former partner and I had discovered (much to my delight) was a pelican paradise.
The commission was to be a birthday present for a good friend of my friend.
My brief was to show two pelicans in 'communion,' watching a scene unfold before them. The idea was to symbolize their friendship.
I searched through my pile of pelican photographs and spent a considerable amount of time playing around with various possibilities while developing outlines on a sketch pad.
I am very pleased to say that my friend was delighted with her commission as was her friend.
