Watercolour - Takeoff

I mainly paint from photos. It's a real delight to use a photo that Yvonne has taken. This one is no exception. Yvonne will spend hours sitting by a lake and watching the birdlife. This photo of a Pelican taking off into the misty, calm dawn was taken at a small lake south of Woollongong. It was well worth the wait to get the perfect shot. Hopefully the painting does justice to the photo and the moment.
