As soon as I saw the Black-Browed Albatross chicks I knew I had to paint them. If you look at the chicks head on, they have a slightly dopey expression that made me giggle whenever I saw them.
The adult birds are sleek and beautiful but their chicks are covered in down and quite ungainly. The nests are built from mud, with extra mud being added each year, so a chick in an old nest can be quite high off the ground. The nest has a design fault theres no drainage, so if theres a prolonged period of rain the poor chick ends up sitting in a puddle.

working title was 'soppy Albatross' and I still can't think of it as
