Harbor Hunks

Watercolor painting of sea lions on a submerged dock by Janet Tarjan Erl.

Harbor Hunks

Medium: Watercolor/gouache, Image Size: 16.75″w x 18.75″h, 2012.

I saw these massive, magnificent Sea Lions clustered along the docks at Newport, Oregon. They were so heavy and numerous they actually sank the docks a bit. It made for a unique painting with interesting shapes, textures, colors, and reflections. This watercolor was juried into the Coos Art Museum’s 19th Annual Maritime Exhibit, 2012; the Oregon Waterways Exhibit, 2012, Giustina Gallery, Corvallis, Oregon; and the Art of the Animal Kingdom, 2013, Bennington Center for the Arts, Bennington, VT.

Sea Lion Duo

Watercolor painting of seals on rocks by Janet Tarjan Erl.

Sea Lion Duo

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 7.5″h x7.5″w, 2015.

I saw these Sea Lions while hiking at Shore Acres State Park in southern Oregon near Coos Bay, Oregon. I was on a trail high on a bluff that overlooked the ocean, so the seals and sea lions felt safe from human intrusion, and they would haul out on the rocks to bask.
