Pelicans everywhere, iii

I finished the sand and then tackled the color question of the lighter legs.  I did decide my yellow was too wimpy and selected a more golden shade.  It's stitched and actually is the shade of the painted legs.  I'll use the same shade for the beaks and top knots when I get to them.

I started the sky using 2 strands of pale aqua mixed with 2 strands of white Splendor.  I'm doing the Byzantine Scotch stitch, one of my favorite stitches for a reasonably large area.  I just love the smoothness of it.
