Harbor Seal Watercolor Pencil Totem Animal

Harbor Seal is the 8th piece in the totem animal project, as well as the 8th in the aquatic series. It is watercolor pencil of a harbor seal swimming through some sea grass. Seals are symbols of change, creativity, dreaming, emotion, faithfulness, good luck, imagination, inner voice, inquisitiveness, intelligence, intuition, love, lucid dreaming, movement, organization, prosperity, protection, security, success, and understanding.

The piece was created in 2017. It is 16″ x 20″ on 18″ x 24″ paper and in a 22″ x 26″ frame.  It took approximately 10.25 hours to complete. I used General’s Kimberly watercolor pencils on Canson mix media paper, and then painted over it with water. It has a spray varnish finish. The painting includes Certificate of Authenticity and usually ships in 1 to 5 business days.
