Animals, Pelican, Jacqui Petersen





Pelicans are one of my favourite birds. This is done in watercolour from a pic I took at Healesville Sanctuary, a wildlife park.

  1. I see only a peek of the bird. Is that how you posted it as is? . It is real good but I am sure you did more of it. It just came sort of cut off.

    1. It is a cropped in view of the head. I wanted a close up.

  4. He's lovely! Brown pelicans are our state bird but the white ones like this are prettier. Love the crop!

  6. Jacqui, I love the crop of the pelican! The eye and the beak are always the most interesting part and you did them so well!!

  7. I really like the cropped view of this bird... it makes the entire composition more visually appealing. Happy Painting!
