I created two larger versions of this pelican several years ago.
Due to their popularity I thought I would try to compose a smaller
version of this guy. I did some experimenting with the background
and am still doing so. This is how one of the first ones turned out.
My husband liked the plate as it was so I thought I would include
it in this post.
Original hand-pulled, textured,
green, alizarin crimson, orange, yellow, collograph of a resting pelican.
