The first two lines added in this image were the top two solid lines that divide the sky from the bottom, the fin was added later, the sun was added later. The center S-lines were added and then I saw the shape taking form and so was born, the whale! In the original color version this is actually colored to look like a real blueish whale in some water swimming into the sunset. I had the swirls looking like a rainbow in color but it just didn't jive with the blue whale, sky and water. It was at this point I decided to set the color aside for this second variation you see here. I was keeping the whale the same blueish color with a darker night shade to it, but that made the entire image too dark, and for some weirdo reason I decided it would be cool to have a skin colored whale! I actually downloaded a skin-color pallet for this, what I jokingly call "The Skin Whale". The title is a play off of "The Right Now" as it is more about living in the now, being present, like a whale or dolphin which brought about the current title "The Whale Now"
