Posted this on the Marine Art forum but it makes sense here as well. I did this 11x14 as a commission for some longtime friends that wanted to give their son and new daughter-in-law a gift to remind them of their wedding on the Oregon coast. No seals attended, but I took some artistic license. =o)
Critiques are warmly welcomed, especially if you see room for improvement.

Beautiful! Lovely background for those seals resting.

I like the composition of the seals. The rocks and water are very good, too.

Very nice work on those rocks and waves. The seals resting form a quiet place to rest the eyes. What medium is this Mike?

Beautiful waves = especially green which ties in perfectly with seals' hues. Very good work.

Lovely painting Mike. I like the placement of the seals and the movement in the wave is wonderful. Thanks for posting this in our forum. :)

Thank you all so much for your kind words. Maybe they're sea lions?
Oh and sorry for not saying so initially--this is oil on canvas.

I love the softness of the seals against the roaring waves in the background. Super.
