My first nonpenguin painting

I've been incredibly busy finishing up the piece I entered into the "Virgin Show" gallery. Right after that I wanted to start a series of penguin drawings - and in the middle of my research I ran across this bird - it's called a Northern Gannet...I liked it's coloring and shape so much I had to paint it. I sort of fudged the brown color of it a bit (they're mostly white with a light brownish patch on the back of their head), but I used a bit more brown to even it out and help add depth.
