Strange looking birds pelicans! I wanted to simplify the shape and try and get some balance going on with the body and the bill!
Very heavily influence form japanese prints as usual, Hokusai printed his masterpiece, The Great Wave off Kanagawa in 1829 when he was 70 years old! Just goes to show as a artist you often don't hit your stride till you have had plenty of practice!
Also futurism influence is creeping in! kind of got something going on in the wing that has some potential. I am getting more an more in to pattern at the moment.
Ultramarine is awesome! balance out with Cadmium Yellow and Qinderchrone gold.

With the exception of artists, inventors, and teenagers - we humans are diurnal daytime creatures on the whole, and although it’s one thing to be out and about during the night in a street lit urban environment, it’s a very different scenario if you find yourself in, say… oh, I don’t know, a forest per se. Where, if you’re lucky, you may hear the unmistakable cry or hoot of an Owl: natures very own nocturne, a stark reminder of the unknown peril of night, and a creature that has featured heavily in myth and folklore throughout the ages.
