Leaping Orca: Watercolour Painting

Leaping Orca (orcinus orca), 8th April 2018

Despite the misleading popular name “killer whale”, the orca is actually the largest member of the dolphin family. Orcas are quite often seen in the Hebridean waters off the west coast of Scotland, and more frequently off the north coast and around the islands of Orkney.

The art work is finished, but the masking or extension of the edges for reproduction in different formats is not yet finally resolved, as always…

Original art work created with Winsor and Newton professional water colour paints, supplemented with body colour (white gouache), Faber Castell Albrecht Dürer watercolour pencils and Caran d’Ache Luminance pencils, on Fabriano Artistico HP watercolour paper.
