Inktober 2018 - official prompt list - #12 WHALE Based mainly on
Eubalaena glacialis, to the best of my before this non existent experience of differing a whale from another.
Excerpt from Wikipedia (quite edited)
The North Atlantic right whale (Eubalaena glacialis, which means “good, or true, whale of the ice”) is a baleen whale, one of three right whale species belonging to the genus Eubalaena. Because of their docile nature, their slow surface-skimming feeding behaviors, their tendencies to stay close to the coast, and their high blubber content, right whales were once a preferred target for whalers. At present, they are among the most endangered whales in the world. There are about 400 individuals in existence in the western North Atlantic Ocean—they migrate between feeding grounds in the Labrador Sea and their winter calving areas off Georgia and Florida, an ocean area with heavy shipping traffic.
A mix of watercolours and bottled ink and masking fluid and quite some playing around.
