"Out Of The Blue" original framed acrylic painting. This painting is a bit of a change in style for me! I really enjoyed painting this artwork and I like its simplicity with the eye being drawn to the whale breaching. This took many weeks to complete in order to capture the detail of the whale and the colour of the ocean. I hope that you like it as much as I do! I am a self-taught artist based in the stunning Highlands of Scotland. I moved from the city to the tranquility of the Highlands some 9 years ago and have found the wildlife and landscapes here truly inspirational. I originally started painting only with oils and then moved on to watercolours, then onto highly detailed pencil art and paintings featuring pencil and watercolour! I now concentrate on acrylic. I guess you could say that I like to experiment!! I have now sold a number of my originals and I continue to paint as much as I can, always challenging myself with new subject matters.
