Australian dot art orca #2
"Who was the genius in marketing who called them killer whales instead of sea pandas?" I absolutely love that quote.
I love the ocean and all it's creatures. On this canvas, I have tried to capture some of that love with a painting of a female killer whale or orca. You can tell the gender by the gracefully curving dorsal fin. In the males they are much staighter. They are such majestically beautiful creatures that I just had to paint him. I have also been considering trying out a bit of Australian dot art for a while and so decided to combine the two in this painting.
He is one of a set sold individually. As with all of my work, this one is signed by me with a "bah".
The painting is executed in acrylic on wrapped canvas with two layers of varnish for protection.
