Shipping calculated at checkout.

This charming portrait depicts an African penguin standing next to its juvenile young, with the dark frame of the birds contrasted against a white background.

When they first hatch the chicks are covered in a soft downy fluff which is replaced by sleek grey feathers as they mature into juveniles. For a period of time some fluff remains around their necks, giving the appearance that the juveniles are wearing fur scarves, the texture of the feathers delicately rendered with soft charcoal application.

Rich in detail and texture this beautiful black and white image is striking whether hung as a large solo print or collectively with other artworks from the series.

This is an Open Edition Fine Art Print of the original charcoal drawing and part of the Oceans of Southern Africa Collection.
