Great Hammerhead Shark

Great Hammerhead 2.5" x 3.5" watercolor and ink Sold

This is a special painting of a beautiful marine creature. I have enjoyed an interest in sharks for 35 years. Working with tropical species in a large aquarium setting for over a decade was a joy. Now, I thoroughly enjoy painting these magnificient animals. This painting is best described by my dearest friend, marine photographer, Jim McKay.

“She magically slips into your view – no fuss or threatening gestures. She is just there, watching, ever alert and ready to react to the slightest provocation. She is the Great Hammerhead, denizen of the open sea and predator supreme.”
