A watercolour whale

cof

I’ve always wanted to paint a whale, to see if I could do it and make it look right. I guess you have to get the movement right, and the shape of the body in the water.

After sketching in the outlines with a watercolour pencil, I had a go at it today. I think the tail may be a little out of shape and the fins a little to light. All in all I’m pretty happy with this one though.
