Painting 2/52 (And yes, I’m a firm believer in, ‘Better-late-than-never,’ ideologies lol...). I admit that I struggled this past week. I started off with an entirely DIFFERENT (and no less wonderful) animal in mind, sketched it all out to the point RIGHT before layering in the paint, and I just couldn’t commit. I switched gears late in the game to something I’m more familiar with, a creature from a habitat that has a tight hold on my heart. No apologies, just an explanation. I present to you, Sphyrna mokarran, or, as most of us may know it, the Great Hammerhead shark. Largely endangered due to the demand for their highly-prized fins, as well as high bycatch mortality rates, these slow to reproduce beauties are facing a battle for species survival. As with so many environmental concerns, there IS hope however, and SO MUCH that WE as a species can do to stop and reverse the problems facing these sharks. For more information on these majestic, misunderstood oceanic dwellers, and for ideas on how we can help keep their numbers in check, take a look at the link in my bio. And, perhaps, google bycatch for an informative and eye-opening read. Smooth sailing to all of you!
