Lorrie #8 - Sea Otter Mom and Pup

   
Sea Otter Mom and Pup, watercolor 4 x 8 inches
Sea otters on our coast are still trying to maintain a decent size population--last two years there have been fewer. It's always a joy to see them, especially moms with pups all bundled up together. These were at San Simeon. Sea otters often have a single gull nearby that loiters for bits of food. I think of the gulls as the otters' "pets" and maybe they are! It was only possible to see this scene clearly with those trusty binoculars!

Adorable. We have these nearby in Monterey Bay. I like how you've captured them.

Very cute- you really caught a lot of personality in this! I also like the way you did the water surface.

Love, love, love, love this! Captures the adorable-ness of one of my favorite animals...without being too "cutesy"!! Great job!

I lived in Monterey last year and remember seeing sea otters, such adorable and cool creatures. I can't imagine being furry and living in the cold water all the time. Your painting makes me miss the ocean. I love the way you captured the water and the kelp.
