Original Ink Painting - Humpback Whale Migration - Wildlife Art Sumi-e
"Humpback Whale Migration" is a sumi-e (Japanese Brush Painting) in my series of minimalist zen artworks. I used traditional soot ink and powerful brush strokes, as I do in all my paintings, in order to create a lasting visual impression. Art buyers and art lovers often remark on my interpretation of traditional Asian masters as I pay homage to their artistic vision but have a contemporary modern twist in my own art.
This is an original Sumi-e (Japanese Brush Painting) by Brazen Edwards measuring approximately 11" x 14" (27.94cm x 35.56cm) on 140lb Arches cold pressed watercolour paper.
Once hunted to the brink of extinction, Humpbacks are now sought by whale-watchers, particularly off parts of the BC and Alaskan coasts. The humpback has a distinctive body shape, with unusually long pectoral fins and a knobbly head. It is an acrobatic animal, often breaching and slapping the water. Males produce a complex whale song, which lasts for 10 to 20 minutes and is repeated for hours at a time.
