Rich 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!
And while the video below is not art, and not Rich’s,
this is the most amazing video I’ve seen on the humpbacks.
A still from the Discovery YouTube video…..
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.

You did it very well. The whale painting is great.
Thank you so much!
Good job on the humpback!!
Thanks Happy 😉
Oh I would love to swim with one too Kate! Great illustration of that whale and thanks for sharing the links too:)
Awesome! Wondering why it’s not art, though? Nature seems full of aesthetic sentiment, as you have been inspired in your sweet painting.
Oh I am glad you said this — I meant the video I was posting at the bottom was not art and not Rich’s… I just corrected! Thank you _/\_
Truly incredible!!! Happy PPF! Have a lovely weekend!
Live your humpback picture and what an awesome video.
Thanks Emma! BTW, your blog is not coming up for me.
Wow this is all very amazing. You painted that Humpback perfectly. There was an error when I tried to watch the video.
It works for me — try clicking on both the link and the image…. It is an AMAZING video!
This is gorgeous… The photo is amazing… As is the video… I love the combination of those colours. It is one of my favourites…
I don’t use much blue, though I like blue… so this was very different, all that ocean!
The whale painting is great…. I love love whale!
Thank you — I enjoyed your post too.
