Adélies on Ice
This mini print features a little group of Adélie penguins, preening and resting on an iceberg. The tail of a humpback whale slips into the water in front of them and the range of beautiful blues of the glacial ice are showcased in all their beauty.
This piece is made from Shelly's own experiences of Antarctica on her six-week artist residency with the Royal Navy, she visited the Western peninsula of the continent which is renowned for its wealth of wildlife.
This print is sold as one of an edition of 50. Each one is hand signed, named and numbered. This piece is sold unmounted (mounted image for scale only).
Icebergs, small and large, provide a convenient resting point for penguins, giving them a platform to sleep and preen in between fishing.
