Seal Painting – Watercolours Requested 🌸 artistbybeauty

Staring into a baby seals eyes 🙂 How could I not fall in love with them ❤ Their big beautiful eyes are captivating and bring so much light to my heart! I’m sure you understand me, just look for yourself and think of the words that come to mind.

Aww, cute, wow, so beautiful, please stop the cuteness as it is too much… and so on. I’m certain here are a million loving words to describe a baby seal looking into your soul. They are very sweet with their whiskers, flippers and rolls 😀

Thinking of a baby seal actually takes me back to when my sister, dad and I would go to a beach not too far from my hometown (maybe a 30 to 45 mins drive away). It is a lovely beach where we played in the sand dunes with friends. I visited this beach often from around ages 9 to 15 years old.

I have many beautiful memories there. From times that we went swimming with our dog at the time Sam, to sleeping on the sand dunes under the stars, which is one of most magical memories that I have. There honestly is nothing like sleeping outside (no tent) under the stars on a clear sky night.

Ok, I have many memories from my trips to that lovely beach. I will share them all with time, otherwise I would have to write a novel right now haha. There is that many ❤ One of my memories there was when we were driving along the beach and I noticed a baby seal.

“Stop the car!”, I screeched. My dad quickly stepped on the brake. I ran to what appeared to be a dog at first in the distance. In the shallow edge of the water. As I got closer… “Get away now!”, my dad yelled in fear. “Do not get any closer”. I froze with my hand reaching out.

“It’s a baby seal, can we please keep him dad”, I said joyfully turning around with a giant smile on my face. “No, we can’t. Seals have to live in the wild”, my dad replied gently. I looked back at the babies face and thought that I can’t just leave him there all alone.

“I know you want to help him since he is lost but we cannot interfere with nature. He will be ok”, my dad said confidently but I knew he was just saying that to make me feel better. I hopped back into the car and we drove further down the beach to where we were staying. I felt upset at the time. I would have been around 12 years old.

I really wanted to help that baby seal but there was nothing I could do. They must have gotten lost in the storm and separated from their family. Even though I knew it was unlikely that baby seal would make it back home. I had hope and was optimistic that a miracle would happen. I still hope it did.

Today on my YouTube channel I am sharing with you a watercolour painting of a baby seal. I really can not get over just how cute their eyes are. It is cuteness overload!

I hope you enjoy the video. Thank you so much for reading and watching! Let’s love each other more. Say something nice not just to someone else today but also to ourselves. Do it now, go to a mirror and look into your eyes. Say something nice. Have a lovely day!

  1. Hello Capili, you have captured the look brilliantly here, I love this picture (dare I say I give it my seal of approval?) I am fortunate, I live on the eastern fringes of the UK and it’s beaches are famous for it’s seal activity. The seals’ breeding/birthing sites are located here. I have visited these beaches and seen them close up (within binocular range). And I can say those eyes are spot on, I like how you avoided making them flat and lifeless and instead made them deep dark and alive. Thanks for sharing.

      1. I am lucky as there are quite a few nature reserves dotted along the coastline of where I live. There are campaigners pushing to get the area recognised as an official area of natural/scientific beauty. The seal population will then have much greater protection.

  2. Loved the smiling seal and your story was so beautiful, Capili. Even I felt so sad that you could not help that little seal baby but that is our life and maybe it must have met its family. Awesome video too. We must all love ourselves first in order to love others too. We are all one big loving family.

    1. Aww thank you dear 😊 Yes, it was sad. I wish I could have. Sometimes nature can be cruel, it happens in life. I just hope the seal got back to their family ❤️ Yes, that’s true – we are all one big loving family x x
