Sea-Lion

I love sea-lions. Who doesn’t ? Underwater, they swim with such a suppleness !

And they are cute. Especially the young females like this one. She seems to strike a pose on a pink rock. The water is so clear that it seems without substance. It’s just this strange animal and me. Am I underwater or not ? Which world are we in ? Am I dreaming ? 

I decided to paint the sea-lion more accurately that the place. The background is even less detailed. So that we focus on this strange and friendly character, standing in the middle of the painting. And especially her head.
