King of the Beach (Elephant Seal)
King of the Beach, an elephant seal pastel drawing on paper. 9 inches wide by 7.5 inches tall.
In spring of 2018, on a road trip towards the San Juan Island from Los Angeles, we pulled over to see the Elephant Seal beach as described in one of those pamphlets you see in racks. This King of the Beach greeted us with interest before he went back to his sleeping. An indescribable moment captured in pastel.
This drawing ships flat. Colors vary from screen to screen, the dominant colors on this pastel painting are black, yellow ochre and the toned light yellow paper.
