Rough Water, Wildlife, Realism, Pelican
11 x 14 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
I created this painting a few years ago-- from some photos I took at the Fort Pierce inlet. It began as a palette knife painting. But then I got into the brush work applied over the cool textures that the knife made. I love the hard rocks against the feathers, and all of that against the moving water. I wanted to make all those contrasts stand out. This is one of those paintings that I just got carried away with and kept adding more and more detail.
