Humpback Whale

 image size is 4" x 10.5
paper size is 11" x 15"

Something really different for me.  I suddenly had the urge to paint a whale.
I like to change what I do every so often.

Besides the subject matter, the paper is rough and the palette is minimal (only two colors).
The paper is a natural color, not the shadowy color in the photo.
In the middle of painting I thought "this is so enjoyable".
A few more will be joining this one.

  1. Very nice. I bought some old whale prints in 1962 in Camden Maine.
    It was an old book store. It's still there. I like the smell of the old books. Of course I don't have them anymore.
