Orca Borealis


This a double-first for me, having never painted either these glorious creatures or the spectacular Northern (or Southern) Lights, so I would love your feedback, please; love and God bless, Andy

A beautiful painting of the family of Orcas. You have caught the affinity between them as they stay together. And the amazing colours of the borealis complements the scene. Such vibrancy in them. Well done Andy, for a brilliant painting🤗❤️xx

A very gentle energy in this painting with breathtaking colours! A sight I would love to have one day ... really fantastic, xx

Thank you so much, dear Linda, for that lovely feedback!! I'd love to see them one day; it was pretty amazing seeing sperm whales up close; love and God bless, Andy❤️xx

Thank you, dear Jacqueline for that generous feedback!! I'm really touched; love and God bless, Andy ❤️xx

Sometimes see the aurora borealis in this part of the country and it is a spectacular sight. You have captured the drama of the sky and the killer whales in colours, which give your painting great justice Andrew.

Thank you, dear Carole, for another lovely review; I don't know where you live, my friend but the only time I've seen it was in Iceland! much love and God bless, Andy 🙂 ❤️xx

I live in Amble by the sea, Northumberland, 25 miles south of Berwick. We have the most fabulous skies here and the scenery in Northumberland is wonderful.God bless Andrew.

That's fabulous, Carole; we've had many holidays in or around Holy Island so we've been to Amble many times over the years; it's such beautiful countryside there and the best beaches in Britain! And mostly almost empty! xxx

Just came across your work this morning for the first time. Really expressive. Love the play of colours and the orcas amidst the borealis!

Thank you Sunil, that's great; it worked out even better than I'd hoped; God bless
