I photographed this American White Pelican from my boat and used Topaz Impression II to paint it. Please click on the image to view it full size. Thank you.

Ron, this is just superb.  There are a few times when I just sit back and admire and wish I was seeing it six foot by four foot.  this is one of those.  Must be viewed large.

PS.  Just logged off.  saw that and thought, OMG,,,, logged back on.
Make your life spectacular!

Stunning, Ron! Amazing colors and beautifully painted. The deep blues create a perfect contrast for the white bird. I like the feathery effects and the nice clear eye- a real charmer. Definitely needs to be seen full size.
