It’s almost three years ago now that I sketched an idea for a painting of fairy penguins. I feel excited that I finally have started it today.
My first little fairy penguin painted
The fairy penguins are the smallest of all the penguins. They breed in Australia, including Tasmania and Bruny Island. I’ve visited Bruny Island several times and seen them come onto shore. They are just gorgeous and it is such a privilege to see their cute, waddling selves.
I hope that you have a chance to visit magical Bruny Island and see these little fellows in real life too. But, if not, there’s a two-dimensional large colony coming on shore and heading up to their nests and here are some fairy penguins in Victoria, Australia.
