Artist's Description

I had the chance recently to visit the New England Aquarium with my daughter. They have a wonderful penguin exhibit there, with three different species. These are African penguins, the only species of penguin that breeds in Africa. Here, I have removed them from the indoor exhibit of fake rocks in a large pool to the more natural setting of a rocky South African shoreline. These birds are monogamous and listed as a vulnerable species.

This drawing was done with charcoal and graphite on Strathmore smooth bristol paper. The original 9″×12″ framed drawing is available.
