When it comes to painting a white pelican, there are a few things you need to take into account to get the perfect aquatic scene. First, you need to make sure that the pelican is the right size in relation to the other elements in the painting. Second, the pelican needs to be in the right position in the painting – too close to the edge and it will look out of place, too far back and it will be lost in the background. Third, the pelican needs to be painted with the correct colors.
To get the pelican's colors right, you need to understand a little bit about how light works. sunlight is made up of all the colors of the rainbow – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. When all these colors mix together, we see sunlight as being white. However, when sunlight hits an object, some of the colors are absorbed and some are reflected. The colors that are reflected off the object are the ones that we see.
So, when painting a white pelican, you need to think about what colors are being reflected off the bird. The easiest way to do this is to look at a reference photo or real pelican and see what colors you can see in its feathers. You might see some yellow, green, and blue – these are the colors that you need to use in your painting.
Once you have the colors sorted, it's time to start painting! Begin by painting the pelican's body with a light blue color. Then, add in the yellow and green colors to the feathers. Finally, use a white paint to add highlights and shadows.
With these tips in mind, you should be able to paint a beautiful white pelican that will look great in any aquatic scene!
