Oilpastels on mountboard. Painting the various textures was quite a challenge, but very enjoyable.

I see what you mean about the various textures being challenging; even though the plumage is mostly white you have these subtle blues and purples in the shadows.

I got to see a pair of these flying while on a whale watching tour. They were stunning.

This is a really beautiful picture. You managed to capture the real elegance of these birds. Great work :D
