Illustration Friday - "Sail"

I should have been working towards our next exhibition, but only having an hour or so to spare, and no fusible web to carry on with my doll, I couldn't resist having a go at this topic. It's done with sgraffito - scratching into oil pastels. I've never done it before and I enjoyed it. I'm having a difficult time at the moment and it took my mind off things slightly- for a little while at least.


I've been having trouble uploading the image so I do hope I don't make some terrible mistake! Also it looks a bit "liney"...oh well. It's the thought that counts.

This is lovely. The sgraffito is perfect for this scene, the lines look as if they're lit by the moonlight.

This is gorgeous! I hope you do more like this. I could fall in love with a picture book full of illustrations just like this one. There is a wonderful sense of peace and companionship in this image.
