Fluid Power Orca – 22 x 30; Original Lithograph; Edition Size 290; $2500.00 U.S.
“When I think of the orca, I think of power. The whale is on the most powerful
creatures of the sea. I decided to give this original print a big, bold, ominous
feeling. If you were diving or in a small boat and you saw this orca rushing at
you, you might wonder if you were going to be the first human in recorded
history to be attacked. I wanted to show the big, black, bulbous, prow-like
head of the orca and the towering fin, which can be taller than a man on
the big, dominant bull orcas. I wanted to show the swirl of the water
because he’s moving quite quickly, and he’s moving right toward you.”

Nature as a subject is becoming more and more popular as our environment is in peril. What better subject is there than the beautiful creatures we share this world with? Robert Bateman’s appreciation and understanding of nature are apparent in his paintings. He is able to paint flora and fauna the way your eye would perceive it in real life. It is important that the animal takes full attention. The background becomes muted, and therefore it doesn’t take too much focus away from the subject. His paintings seem effortless and masterful all at once.
