Pastel painting of an antarctic seal pup. This pup was painted from photos taken by my parents from their trip to the Antarctic. I generally have a rule that I only paint from my own photos, however I haven't had the chance to go myself, and my parents were kind enough to supply me with some beautiful photos. This pup was spotted at the start of their travels on a beach on the Falkland Islands, if you look into his eyes the rugged landscape is reflected in them.
Pastel on pastelmat, with pH neutral and non acid double mount and back board.
