A penguin is a favorite animal of people from all over the world. These animals have inspired many artists and creative projects, like the picture of the two penguins who have been widowed and a series about life in Antarctica.

Today’s post is about an acrylic painting by British artist Sophie Green. Sophie Green is known for her lifelike depictions of wildlife. And her latest award-winning project is called The March. It shows a group of emperor penguins walking through a snowstorm.
These penguins live a hard life in Antarctica, and this large, horizontal painting perfectly captures it. It has a simple design that draws attention to how well each bird is drawn. Green’s hard work paid off, as this piece was shortlisted for the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation’s Wildlife Artist of the Year Award 2021 and even gained recognition. Her piece became so popular that it was chosen as runner-up in the BBC Wildlife magazine’s People’s Choice award.
It’s not hard to see why this painting was so well-liked. Green used her skills to make more than a dozen penguins move in a bent line. Each bird is mixed in with a white background. Some of the subjects that are farther away are more covered by the fog. In this picture, the artist shows how these animals live in harsh conditions in Antarctica every day.
