Artwork Description: "After feeding, a cormorant spreads its wings for a morning's 'dry time'."
Artist comment: "A cormorant, with out-stretched wings, is one of my favorite subjects to paint. Here at the edge of the sea, one stands in the sun, watchfully waiting for it's wings to dry. I captured it with my camera, then in my studio later, I referenced that image to draw and paint this interesting bird. I chose pastel and Canson Mi-Teintes paper for the painting. I like the way the intense 'blackness' of the bird stands out against the rippling water. I completed water, rocks, and piling. Then eagerly began the cormorant. His beak and eye were the 'icing on the cake!"
