Pelican in Progress

by Ariella Medeiros January 16, 2020

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.
