Two orca whales swim side by side through the foaming ocean with the sun setting in the background. Ocean. Orange, Purple, Blue, White, Black. Large Painting by artist Donald Ryker in textured expressionist impressionist art style with unique impasto glaze technique.
This painting has a lot of my favorites. It has movement, contrast, and vivid color. It is also one of the few times I have used black. I created the waves around these two with sponging and swirling layers of glaze. The shoreline in the distance is a very deep purple and the sky is lit with vivid colors of the sunset. Someday I would like to see these amazing animals in nature. —Donald Ryker
