Fine art illustration of a Bowhead Whale (Balaena mysticetus.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Bowhead Whale was completed on 4.30.2012. This is the first official state marine mammal I’ve completed for the project I’d started – to complete drawings of all state mammals of the US. Drawing whales can be tricky, as few reference photos exist because the subject is one that of course is a challenge to capture. So I used a number of images – both photos and drawings – to help me create this illustration.
