Provincial Penguin Loving Local Foods

Hello! I’d like to introduce you to Provincial Penguin!

I’m delighted to have painted a penguin on the Maggie’s Penguin Parade.  Number 64 on the trail map, next to the 5 penguin sculptures.  It’s great to be part of the trail of 80 penguins to find in Dundee and surrounding areas and the money raised is for Maggie’s Dundee.  You can find out more about it here.

Provincial Penguin is inspired by the delicious visitors’ offering for tourists visiting the area.  Filling its tummy up with local produce such as Dundee marmalade, Dundee cake, strawberries, shortbread, salmon and fresh fish.  You may even find something from a hotter climate on it’s tummy inspired by my sponsor.  Big thanks to Nandos Dundee for picking my penguin design. 

Here’s a few photos of the process of me painting my penguin in The Wellgate, I enjoyed painting along with other artists and designers. Continue reading
