Pen and Ink: Pelican


Sometime I just like to sit back in my recliner and relax with some paper, pen and ink and have a relaxing evening of drawing. Thinking of the lovey pelicans that graced me with their presents at the beach a few weeks back inspired me to get started on a black and white memory of one. They’re quite beautiful birds that happens to have some character.

    Yes this drawing of yours certainly does have character, and you have drawn this Pelican very well indeed, you know the other week I saw a Stork land in my neighbour’s garden, which surprised me a lot, in fact I hadn’t realised how big those birds are close up…

    Thank you for sharing your wonderful art with us all Deb…

    • Pelicans are quite large birds. The ones that graced my presents was about the size of toddlers; huge birds. They remind me of prehistoric birds.
      Your welcome, and thank you for the comment, Andro.

  2. Great drawing. I only get to see Pelicans on vacation but love to watch them. Keep up the good work.


  3. A very nice drawing. I like the way you framed it. The eye really draws you in.

  4. This is so regal looking and you brought out the best in this species, I think, their neck. I like, most, watching them fly. I call what they do “swooping”. I have watched them follow fishing boats in at the end of the day, swooping low over the water behind the boat. …looking for handouts, perhaps? Excellent drawing Debbie.

    • Yes, that’s just the word for what they do, Leslie, “swoop.” Smiling big, “They can sure hold a lot of fish in there too.” I’ve had them land on the hood of the truck and just sit there awhile, hand around the truck hoping my husband with throw them a little something when he’s baiting up.

      Thank you for the wonderful comment, you have made my day, Leslie!

  5. Your Paintings are really good… you’re on my bookmark now 😉

  6. That is a beautiful drawing, and very life like.

    • Oh Hi! I know you..I’ve seen you at Binky’s place, the Wombania Comic Strip. So nice of you to come check out my artwork.
      That is a lovely comment you made, Thank you, Hjortur!
      I’m off to check out your site.

  7. I love the way you approached this Debbie, it’s beautifully drawn.

    • Yes, so do I. The approach was rather different than my usual and think I prefer it better.
      Thank you for your kind comment, Keith!

  8. Wow…that’s awesome. He looks like a thinker.
    Maybe one day I can be drawn like that. Kame has been drawn before, I haven’t.

    Have you ever drawn a turtle aunt Debbie? (Since I am only 3 years old,I have to call you aunt)

    • Aw, thank you, Kroten!…You made my evening for me.
      Maybe you can be drawn one day, but to date I have not yet drawn a turtle. But I have given it though before.

      You may call me aunt Debbie…..cute.

      • Yaaiii… I will wait for your turtle drawing 🙂
        We, turtles of any kind, have unique pattern…so it would be a nice challenge for you 😉

      • Well I don’t know when it will be, but I’m sure you will know just as soon as I do…when I so.
        Yes, they have many patterns. Here on the Island we have many turtles. Some times on the way to the beach we have to stop in the road to let a turtle cross the road. I want to get out of the truck and move him/her across for taking so long. lol.
        Are you poky too?

        Aunt Debbie xx
