Puffin Pair Looking Down There

Puffin Pair
Looking Down There

Artist's Note: Puffins, with their distinctive bills, almost become trite, so my focus was in painting a more graphic and design view, with motion for the eye, of this bird species that I've photographed and lived with for over a quarter of a century.

Two Atlantic puffins (Fratercula arctica)
high on a cliff in Látrabjarg, West Fjords, Iceland
August 8, 2006, painted November 9, 2020
13" x 15.5" (w x h), Daniel Smith, Schmincke Horadam,
and Winsor & Newton watercolors, selected for light fastness
and permanence, and Prismacolor waterproof fade proof ink
