I like the brushstrokes you used to create this guy, especially his face. The water splashes look really good as well. It doesn't seem easy to me to create this type of scene in watercolors. The color blending looks really nice too.

I love the delicate colours in this beautiful watercolour painting showing the magnificent whale leaping from the water. You've captured the feeling of motion very well. His body looks nice and shiny from the water. Very good use of light and shade. Great composition. Suzanne

Jumping for joy! This is a well done work. It creates the sense of fun and joy of this frolicking whale (if something that large can frolic.) Nice sense of size. Good motion. The colors support the fun in the image. Nice details. Well done.

Beautiful painting of a Humpback Whale Breaching out of the water.
Excellent sense of movement and superb impact water splash up.
The textures of the water the paste offers is very cool.
Beautiful gift fine painting.

Great job. I bet your friend loved this. This Humpback whale does look like he's kicking up his fins a bit while up to blow his spout. I love the colors you chose. Very pretty sky. Great job.

A beautiful stop action picture capturing the Whale as it breaches up out of the sea only to crash back in seconds later all perfectly controlled by itself your depiction of the spray thrown up as the Whale breaks the water's surface is fantastic. And your depiction of the waves is full of movement too. Created by your artist's eye for composition very skilful brushwork, beautiful choice blending & application of your colours in bringing this Whale to singing life.

    Hi! *hugz* so good to be back!! She did love it very much. I've been focusing a lot on my art the last year. I guess I had to find myself(artistically), so to speak. I've always thought about you and your beautiful pictures and really did miss all the art and photos to see on FAR. I had to take time off to remember why I fell in love with art and why I want to do it. I really enjoy painting with water colors. I also picked me up a color wheel, it really helps me with my color contrasting and blending. :D So good to see you again as well!! Can't wait to catch up looking at your beautiful photos!!

Great piece, I am sure she loved it! I really like the background color in the sky, the contrast really helps the whale stand out. The painting has a semi abstract feel which makes the detail on the whale stand out. Thanks for sharing.
