Eye to Eye with Humpback Baby

1005Rich German was eye to eye with a baby humpback whale.

He took a picture, and allowed me to use it to sketch.
I did this very quickly, and am happy with it.

I only wish I could have the experience!

this is the most amazing video I’ve seen on the humpbacks.

I can’t thank Rich enough for allowing us to use some of his images.
You can, by visiting his page and joining his cause.
(BTW, follow him on FB and see great videos!)
Rich also sells his photographs and paintings,
with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the ocean.

Hopefully the Discovery Channel will not mind the use of a still… yes I cheated.

    Awesome! Wondering why it’s not art, though? Nature seems full of aesthetic sentiment, as you have been inspired in your sweet painting.
