Illustration Friday: adrift



Do you catch my drift? My submission for Illustration Friday's "adrift" theme is a colour pencil study on StoneHenge paper and the frame is clay and resin. Eventually this boat will drift and be adrift...

i caught your drift on the "adrift" and that the boat will drift and be adrift.

Now I see you're not only a talented artist, but a talented Poetrist as well.

(izzat a word .. Poetrist?) hope so!

I caught your drift Val! :o) This piece is so lovely on it's own, but wow, as a framed work it is simply breath taking! You are amazing!

oh makes me miss Coronado. Oddly enough they had a gondola that toured through the Cays.

I did indeed catch your drift! I love these gorgeous colors and how your eye travels right up that red pathway to your charming house - guess they'll have to find another way back after the boat drifts off! I recently started working with Rising Stonehenge with my colored pencils and I really like it. Cheers! Susan

I like the lazy look of this illustration. I'm sure the boat will drift away... but not this warm Italian night. Very nice Valerie!

Your house seems to be yawning giving a dreamy sensibility to the work. You do have a way with coloured pencils!
I would like to step into that boat because it is inviting and it feels safe.
