This orca painting was inspired by my trip to the Lofoten (Norway) in 2019, when we travelled to the North to spot orcas hunting herring in the cold waters of the Fjords. A truly amazing experience I cannot recommend enough! In this work I tried capturing the soft light of the North with the drama of a surfacing pod of Orcas!
