Day 18 - Common Seal
We saw plenty of these on our recent trip to Skye and this one was painted from a photo Gary took near Loch Coruisk on the Isle of Skye. They are such comical animals to observe, they never seem to look comfortable whatever position they decide to lie in on the rocks, they move so awkwardly on land yet once they are in the water swim so gracefully. They have the most expressive eyes which I don't feel I've really captured in this painting and they have a natural curiosity which is endearing.
I'm not sure if I'll be able to keep up with these daily paintings. It's much more difficult now that I'm back in work and other things are becoming neglected! but will try my best even if it's just a quick sketch. Thank you to those of you who are following this challenge, I really do appreciate your comments and support and hope you're enjoying my look at our wonderful British wildlife!
