I have used watercolour, charcoal and bodycolour for this artwork.
The painting was inspired by my recent sketching trips to the Grey Seal sanctuary on the Norfolk coast. I have painted a mother and older pup at sunrise on Hunstanton Beach, Norfolk.
Grey seals (Halichoerus grypus) are the largest breeding seals found in the UK. Half of the world's population of grey seals are found around British coasts, and numbers here have doubled since 1960. In the autumn, females congregate at traditional pupping sites called rookeries.
