Passing through – by Jules Baldwin

My return to a favourite subject of mine due to the absolute joy found in the many ways water and form can be expressed in visual terms. Whales of course are also beautiful, graceful creatures that make a wonderful subject for many Artists, including myself.
I have once again retrieved my trusty pallet knife and created beautiful texture and then found the form as I always do, adding my lines as and when I felt they were needed. My need to find the expression amongst the layers of paint always supersedes the perfect details, the details being in the overall sense of this amazing creature.
I rarely get to upload my Whale paintings for very long as they are very popular and sell quickly so I have done two, this is the first one and is a smaller version, painted in Plywood and framed with Tasmanian Oak, a really lovely way to fill a small space or add to a cluster of paintings you may already have.
Whilst travelling I had plenty of time to admire the environment we so often take for granted, this includes the ocean and all the creatures that call it home.

I like to research as much as I can when I have a fascination with certain subjects, such as this beautiful mammal that contributes so much to the life and in turn the continuation and stabilisation of the ecosystem within our oceans.
Below is an explanation which explains clearly the reasons why we need to continue to protect our whales …
Until recently, people regarded whales as too rare to have any major impacts on Earth’s oceans. But as they begin to recover from previous decimation alongside increasing oceanic research, scientists are finding that these animals are actually vital components in the stabilisation of marine ecosystems it turns out, whales help regulate and support a vast spectrum of marine organisms whose abundances increase or decrease in their presence. With such large metabolic demands in the great whales for instance sperm and baleen, they consume an enormous quantity of fish and invertebrates, while they themselves are prey to other high trophic level creatures such as orcas.
Even after whales die, they continue to support oceanic species in a large way. A phenomenon known as “whale fall,” in which their immense carcasses sink to the seafloor, provides an abundance of nutrients that support deep-sea life. This biological event is described in detail by notable marine biologist and TED Fellow, Asha de Vos, who affirms that as the carcasses sink, “they provide a feast to some 400-odd species” that are sustained by the nutrients and shelter they provide, and can support marine biological communities for years, even decades. Thus, without whales, entire marine communities would likely be affected as balance in the ecosystem fluctuates in the absence of these great mammals.
