Lorraine Gill Galleries - The Outback Series
Pelican CatalinaWhilst in my studio room in Rose Bay Sydney; the memory of the pelicans invaded my mind.
I wondered if it was possible to convey movement and the character of; the essence; of Mr Pelican. This had to be done very quickly without faltering to bring life into the combination of awkward and grace which epitomizes pelican.
The memory was of another restaurant in queensland once again with Tony Buzan who had stayed two days with my sister Dale and her husband Les. It was Tonys,birthday and we went to a seaside restaurant; once again beseiged by a flock pelicans. The flapping of wings; the clacking of beaks; the flurry of foam as they took off and was the inspiration.
