Been a while since I made a full painting. It was super relaxing and fun.
Actually this was my first time trying to paint anything even semi-realistic with acrylics so there was lots of experimenting and learning going on. I'll definitely try doing something like this again!
As for the picture itself, one morning I woke up... way too early really. I'm not sure if I were even fully awake when this image or.. idea flashed into my mind. I fell back asleep and later that day still remembered it. Ever since that I had such an urge to paint it out and here we are. In my head the colors were a whole lot more vivid - all sorta shades of pink, yellow, green and blue - but I'm still fairly happy how I managed the colors in this. I'm a sucker for high contrasts so perhaps a bit lighter bg makes the whales pop out even more.
Naturally, this thing looks better in real life. Like everyone knows, camera tends to mess up with the colors. 8I
