A water colour painted on to silk, signed and dated 1981.

King Penguins are the second largest of the penguins and live in colonies on sub-Antarctic Islands. The eggs are incubated at the parents’ feet. Chicks can take up to 16 months to fledge and are left during the winter for up to 5 months. Here is a photo of parent and chicks (they must be tough little critters):

The painting is a pretty good likeness I think you will agree and cost only £2.25. A bargain!
