In Royal Company by ShaleseSands In Royal Company by ShaleseSands

I wanted to share this painting that I just finished yesterday. I've been working hard on this one since the end of last year/beginning of this year and I'm very pleased with the outcome. I used a TON of references in this piece and I want to thank Stefan Jacobs (orcahome.de/) for use of some of his orca photos, Matt Dozier from NOAA for more orca refs, my sis for the background refs, and the wonderful RIL on WetCanvas for the water/background. Enjoy!!

EDIT: Wow! A DD!! Thank you so much guys--I am completely humbled and honored by this. Thanks especially to Erzsabet for suggesting it and STelari for featuring it. :heart:

In Royal Company by Misted-Dream is a remarkable oil painting. All the details and well chosen colours make the viewer nearly feel the water and chill in the air. ( Suggested by Erzsabet and Featured by STelari )

A water picture! ... with orcas! ... my hat's off to anyone who can make water look 'watery'.  (doffs her chapeau)  In fact, I'll just go tuck this in my faves folder. :)
