Fine art illustration of a Minke Whale (Balaenoptera acutorostrata.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Minke Whale was completed on 9.22.2010. Whales are always a tricky subject, as obviously one can’t realistically hope to sketch them in the wild, so you have to rely upon photos and models mostly. Occasionally you’ll get lucky and a local museum or aquarium will have a life-size replica. This drawing of a Minke Whale is based on a photo by the talented underwater photographer Scott Portelli
