I studied fisheries biology at university & did some whale research during the end of my degree. When they breach & jump out of the water they leave behind some skin on the surface, so we were collecting that for identification. Also their tail fluke contains individual markings that are unique to the animal, like a finger print, so we were also photographing the tails.
One day while we were out on the water we saw two huge humpback whales. They popped up out of the water and saw us too and headed straight for the boat. They swan underneath and alongside us for a long time. I was both mesmerized and terrified at the same time. You really don't realise how big they are until they are underneath your boat and a small flick of a tail could send us into the ocean.
I painted this watercolour of a humpback to bring some of that beauty into your home and will always be enamored by these amazing animal's.
