Stunning acrylic and mixed media painting of an Australian Pelican. Vibrant textured colour with metallic highlights will enhance any wall bringing the outside in.
Pelicans love to perch up high on the top of posts. They can often be seen gliding up high in the sky in thermals or swimming peacefully along the river hunting for fish.
After years of visiting Noosa for holidays and taking thousands of pelican photos the reference photo I have used for this painting is one I took during a stroll along the Noosa river at Noosaville.
I first produced a pastel painting which is now hanging in the home of my mother-in-law who also loves Noosa. I loved the photo so much that I wanted to paint it with acrylics and experiment by using stenciled modelling paste for the plumage. The wing feathers have been created using modelling paste applied with a palette knife and a gold paint gilds the tail feather tips.
Please read my poem Pelican Pete for the best description of these amazing birds.
