The paper used is 320g Hahnemuhle archival watercolour paper. The process employs fade resistant, archival inks, which boast a 100+ year fade-proof guarantee.

The paper prints are sold plastic wrapped on an acid-free foamcore backing board. These prints are also available in varying sizes of canvas.

 

African Penguins

The endangered African penguin is only found in Southern African waters where I live. It is also widely known as the “jackass” penguin for its donkey-like bray. Like all extant penguins it is flightless, with a streamlined body, and wings stiffened and flattened into flippers for a marine habitat. It has distinctive pink patches of skin above the eyes which helps them to cope with changing temperatures. When the temperature gets hotter, the body of the African penguin sends more blood to these glands to be cooled by the air surrounding it. I live near a protected colony and therefore have had the privilege of observing these penguins up close.
