Request from a lady who wanted a Pelican on a beach picture. This is 90 x 60cm and I have spent a lot of time on it based on beach photo's I took myself and a stock picture of Pelican.
I would love constructive criticism before I show it.
Cheers Bill

 :thankyou: Val and Dennis. I see what you mean Dennis, I never thought that of the finished painting, fortunately the person who bought it was very happy. He lived in one of those houses.  :)
