This was an experiment in the use of Watercolour pencils done whilst on holiday last year and inspired by a visit to the Summer Isles off the coast of Ullapool.

How sweet! Did you do this plein air, while on location? Watercolor pencils are great to travel with and so much fun to work with. I'm glad to see so many different medium types here in the Marine forum.

No, not on location, Jamie. It would have been somewhat difficult - the sea was rather rough and the boat was tossed around rather a lot. Done back at the hotel with reference to the photos taken but a scene created from a compilation of photos.

'Makes me seasick just thinking about it! LOL... I love doing pages of compilation sketches on location...that's what made me think perhaps you did them from life. But animals usually don't pose long enough for that!

I know I keep saying I love these paintings...but I love this one too. The simplicity and the composition are marvelous. And you just have to love the little seagull watching the seals trying to maneuver around on the shore. :clap: :clap: :clap:

I LOVE seals, and I LOVE this too. It really captures how wonderfully silly seals can be.

Hi Joy,
A deceptively simple looking work which actually has lots of movement and interest. Well done.
