These are my Dream Whales in progress. They are gouache on watercolor paper, about 4 x6, and I adore them. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them. I think I'm still feeling out how to paint what I feel/see in my imagination. These are coming very close to the aesthetic I'm hoping for. I'm still trying to decide if I like the all-black background.
This is a whale painting I did last night. It's a test for a larger one (this is 4x6). I'm thrilled with how it turned out. I love the dots and the movement and the breaching whale. I was inspired to paint this by a customer of mine who is decorating her room in the theme of whales in a bay under starry skies. Gorgeous idea. I need to work on my patience with lines and geometry...I've never been a stickler for perfection (especially in art), but this piece would lend itself to straight, evenly spaced lines.
I'm going to be doing a lot of art this weekend (hopefully) and will have a lovely shop update next week. Happy Dreaming!
