I-F: Strong


Some strong winds a blowin!

This is a bit of a companion piece to my previous I-F painting (Caution), both potential entries for Image Zoo's contest for their artists (of which I am one). It's a 'show off' contest, but unfortunately I only had 2 hours to do this from start to finish so don't feel like it's much of a show off, so not sure if I will enter at all...
The topic was 'social networking' - so these are both entitled "Face-book (old school)"

Also, as a bonus here is a previous IF post "Strength" that I did aaaaages ago, when I was still working digitally. Have I really been doing Illustration Friday for 4 years? wow.

I especially love the printed sail, and the swirls of the wind. This is a delightful illustration.

I like the way the little red boat shows up in this. (I did wind too.)

Nice collage incorporated into watercolor! I've been also trying to put collage and watercolor together, but it doesn't turn out right. Yours is really something!
