Seal Pup – acrylic painting

Her eyes, deep sad pools, tugged at my heart and with her tilted head she spoke ~ by Mary

Seal Pup, an acrylic painting (9×12), was painted on canvas paper using mainly Liquitex and Golden brand acrylics.  Who would have thought I’d be painting a Seal, it’s so completely different from my norm, but originally this painting was created for a mother’s/children’s benefit auction.  It was fun piece to try and capture this little one.  I fell in love with this Seal, she was sweet as could be.

    This painting tugs at my heart strings; so adorable. It’s also lovely that you feel confident to paint something a little different from your usual subjects.

      It’s good to see you Gallivanta – thank you, I enjoyed reading your response to the painting. Seals are pretty cool sea creatures – I don’t know if I’m drawn more to their faces of their eyes.

  9. Nice painting, I like the cool blue colours, also the seal looks so rounded.

    Oh Mary this seal pup is adorable.

      Hi Susan, thanks so much – I love your reaction to the painting. When we first moved to Maine , we lived by the ocean and I remember there were seals always playing in the water slapping their fins. Seals are a gift from the sea.

    Ohh, your special words that open this post are outdone only by the emotion I feel looking at your painting. This may not be your usual genre, but I would love to see more animals. Mary, you capture heart and soul, within a very well executed work of art!

  13. What a beautiful painting.
