I love this story! It is old, it comes from the 2nd Centry, probably from Greece. Sailors mistake sleeping whales for islands. They would tether their ships to the “island”, disembark and set up camp. The whale would then plunge to the depths of the ocean sinking all the ships and drowning the sailors.
I have wanted to add whale to the collection, I did one a couple of year's ago, but Ifelt it lacked energy, it was one of my first attempts! With this one I amed to get some energy into the composition and illustrate the watery depths! I did'nt hold back with the ultramarine! I balanced it with Quindercrome Gold.

In Greek mythology, Halcyone and Ceyx were lovers who incurred the wrath of the god Zeus by mocking him and his wife. Angered, Zeus killed Ceyx.
