Pelicans are one of the most interesting and beautiful creatures in the world. They are also one of the most difficult animals to paint. But with a little bit of practice, you can paint a pelican in flight that looks just like the real thing.
Here are a few tips to help you get started:
1. Start by sketching out the basic shape of the pelican. Use a light pencil so you can easily erase and make changes as you go.
2. Once you have the basic shape down, start adding in the details. Pelican feathers are actually quite simple to paint. Just start with a light brown color and then add in some darker browns and blacks.
3. The next step is to add in the white belly and head. This can be a bit tricky, but just take your time and be careful not to overdo it.
4. The last step is to add in the blue-gray wings. Again, start with a light color and then add in some darker shades.
And that's it! With a little bit of practice, you can paint a pelican in flight that looks just like the real thing.
