Under the sea for Illustration Friday












This is also from my St Ives Journal (see posts below). Browsing in one of the bookshops I found a children's book called Underwater Farmyard by Carol Ann Duffy & Joel Stewart. I loved it so much I copied one of the drawings into my journal and coloured it in with my cheapo kiddie watercolour paint set bought from the Woolworth's on the seafront. This was the result.

I assume being below the water ,
These are sheepwrecks?

Otherwise I couldn't condone the depiction of drowing sheep in any way shape or manor.
