A client wanted a pair of humpback whales with a sense of urgency. Depicting the fight for survival against whale hunting. I've never painted whales before, so I dove into studying them. Studying water and light rays. I'm happy with it. The owner is extremely pleased.
I was never satisfied with this painting. I decided to highlight the texture of the entire tree. The tree's texture was created using pallet knife and a mixture of acrylic stucco medium, acrylic glaze, and acrylic paint. I still have more detailing. My good camera took a dive so this was taken with my iPhone. Needless to say it's a little out of focus. Anyone know of any good camera deals?
