Whale with a Difference

I’ve finished painting this humpback whale. I’m leaving it floating on a white background. Unfortunately, my camera has not been able to pick up the subtle turquoise and hints of other colours that I have dropped in while painting wet-in-wet.

This is the next whale I am working on. I have plans for it. It’s going to be different than the one above in more ways than one. I’m not going to leave it floating on a white background. Stay tune for the unfolding of the background for this whale… it’s going to take weeks, if not months, but hopefully it will be worth the wait, and hopefully there’s even some anticipation. 🙂 lol

there’s a fair bit of turquoise and raw sienna in this painting that my camera hasn’t picked up.

Well, I hope that life has been a dreamy day for you today and that you feel as relaxed as our whales. Wishing you an awesome weekend.

Cheers, Patricia (PJ)

Hair Extensions

Last year, I painted Humpback whales to celebrate Sea Shepherd’s 40th anniversary and help raise funds for this non-profit conservation organisation whose mission is to protect and conserve the world’s oceans’ ecosystems and species. (All of these whale paintings are on my website: http://www.pjpaintings.com).

Sea Shepherd has asked me to support their fund raiser again. This time I focused on other sea creatures, all of whom are suffering in plastic and pollution riddled oceans.

Hair Extensions: Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos have a short crest on the top of their heads compared to the other cockatoos’ crowns that they flaunt and display ostentatiously. Feeling slightly inferior, this cockatoo set about to find a hairdresser that does feather extensions but alas there are none to be found in Tasmania. An octopus seems like a good compromise, and fortunately for this cockatoo, it found a very obliging one to crown its head with long, flowing, attractive tentacles.

This painting will be for sale in support of this worthy cause at Red Parka, 22 Criterion Street, Hobart, Tasmania, commencing Sept 5th.  It is now at Full Gamut, professional photographers, and then prints of it will be available on the Pj Paintings website.

Now, I’m working on my third and final painting of this series titled “The Bun”.
