Dolphins of Summer

Type: drawing Uploaded: 2015-10-26


My first artwork on Art Corner, yay! This is a coloured pencil drawing I entered into a competition. I didn't win, but I still think it is worth putting it here. The animals featured in this artwork are Hector's Dolphins. They are the smallest dolphins in the world, endemic to New Zealand (where I live) and not afraid to go right behind people! Swimming with the dolphins is an amazing experience, and at a place called Curio Bay you can see lots of dolphins swimming in the sea. I created Dolphins of Summer by sketching ideas, drawing and shading a black/white draft, then tracing and colouring the picture in with colour pencils.

    I like your composition, but the dolphins can be more definite in form. If you're going for an impressionist style, I'd suggest that paint could be a better medium, honestly. But your art has borne much fruit as initial progress.
