series description

In WYLAND ART STUDIO, marine-life artist and environmental conservationist Wyland — best-known for his epic series of 91 life-size marine murals — takes viewers step-by-step through the creation of one of his vibrant photorealistic paintings. Wyland works on canvas with non-toxic water-based oil paint to re-create scenes from the Pacific Ocean. His subjects include: bottlenose dolphins, orcas, seascapes, sea lions, coral reef, sea otters, turtles, Great White Sharks, Gray Whales, Emperor Penguins, pelicans, whale tails and kissing dolphins. In keeping with his eco-conscious approach to painting, Wyland closes each episode with a tip for helping the environment.
