About this artwork
I love the pelicans especially when they gather near the fishermen that are arriving from their fishing trip.
The Australian pelican (Pelecanus conspicillatus) is a large waterbird in the family Pelecanidae, widespread on the inland and coastal waters of Australia and New Guinea, also in Fiji, parts of Indonesia and as a vagrant in New Zealand. It is a predominantly white bird with black wings and a pink bill. It has been recorded as having the longest bill of any living bird. It mainly eats fish, but will also consume birds and scavenge for scraps if the opportunity arises.
So big and unique in their look I like to portray them on canvas by using soft marine colors and using texture and broad brush strokes.
A lovely painting that would suit any home especially a contemporary look.
Acrylic on quality artist canvas. Ready to hang. Finished with satin varnish for protection.
