'Mother Ocean' Humpback Whale Original Art

Regular price £140.00 £0.00 Unit price per
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

This art work was inspired by my favourite ocean inhabitant the humpback whale. These ginormous babies can weigh over a tonne and measure up to one third of their mothers body length. The mother doesn't feed during the time she is at a breeding ground, and whilst nursing the milk comes from her blubber stores, they are really incredible nurturing mothers!

This piece was painted with a mix of water colour, gouache and pigment ink, on A4 cold pressed 320gsm watercolour paper. 

Original art is signed by hand and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
