A Pelican frequents the harbor, here standing on a favorite post. This small work of art combines scratchboard and watercolor. The scrimshaw like effect of this media combinations seems to especially suit nautical subjects. 5" by 7" painting find a place anywhere or group nicely with harmonizing pieces.

Brown pelicans frequent the Pacific Coast of the US, taking on a slightly awkward appearance when on land, and showing elegance in flight. I used the weathered gray-white boards of a harbor structure for contrast behind the brown feathered bird. A touch of watercolor brings in the sky reflection in the harbor waters and the colors of the great sea bird.
