Yet another month has gone by, and I'm happy to write that I enjoyed working on another bootcamp assignment. The mini was all things nautical, especially ships in a bottle, and whales, and the final assignment was for wall art.
I was drawn to the idea of a sailor at night, perhaps dreaming and thinking of home, but enjoying the stars and the sky and the waves. It makes me wonder where a sailor feels most at home: at sea or on shore at home? In the end, I submitted the eyes open version to the gallery, but my favorite is the eyes closed version. I can't wait to be working on a collection of these.
I combined ink, watercolor, public domain textures (Japanese fabric, bookcovers, and wood), as well as a scanned wood canvas background I made.
