Drawing and Painting of a Dolphin

This is a 15″x21″ drawing and painting of a dolphin, drawn and painted with pens, paint pens, and watercolors on matte board. The drawing started with a quick blue pen sketch, followed by deep blue paint pen. White paint pen on the white of the paper was next, which creates interesting patterns under the watercolors applied last.

Unusual placement of blue, red, and other colors in the abstract background create an uncomfortable viewing angle for a dolphin, traditionally shown underwater. Lately, I have been affected by thinking about dolphins as “the most intelligent creatures on Earth after humans”, and “should therefore be treated as “non-human persons” and granted rights as individuals.” (physorg.com)
