Pastel and gouache painting of Antarctic penguins on pastelmat. As a rule I only use photos I've taken myself. However my parents had a fantastic trip to the Antarctic, returning with some beautiful photos, I couldn't resist. The title came about due to the two penguins that have just dipped their feet into the water, they are looking over to the two penguins already in and swimming, the original title was "Come on in the water's lovely!", but this seemed a bit of a mouthful!
