The topic for Illustration Friday this week is “search”. For some reason I thought about this little boy sailing out into the middle of the ocean searching for a really big fish! My idea started out as a very quick sketch:
I decided I wanted to try a painting this week. I haven’t painted in sooooooo long… plus my dear little brother gave me these wonderful paints as a Christmas present! I figured it was about time for me to try them out!
Here’s a work in progress shot:
And voila! The final painting (with a tiny bit of tweaking in photoshop):In a way, this image represents me “searching” for time to remember how to paint. I had a lot of fun experimenting with this piece and I hope I can continue to find more time to paint in the near future. Hope you enjoyed my submission for this week!
