Pelicans are among my favorite birds to paint.  There is something prehistoric in their crusty beaks and beady eyes, but they have a beauty and solemnity that is unique. This particular pelican I have painted many times.  Here he is in his non-breeding plumage. I have painted this particular Brown pelican many times.  He resided at WildCare, a wildlife rehabilitation center in Marin County. There, I was able to study him up close, and get the clear reference that I need.   I was sad to learn he passed away this past winter.
