My penguin portrait



This little guy has been part of the family since my partner gave him to me thirteen years ago.
I'm very fond of him, he has a darling little hyperactive waddle when he's wound up, sometimes he gets so excited that he falls over his own feet!
And he delights in giving the cat Ms.Tippytoes a fright every now and then.
Well I decided to celebrate his longevity by painting his portrait.
This is just the first sketch, I intend immortalise him on canvas but first I need to do a few character studies:)

When you wind him up, Janie's partner gets hyperactive too ! Cool penguin though ..
