Sail



(Crayon on cartridge paper)

This is for Illustration Friday's brief, "Sail."

It's a bit of a cheat, really, , because it's actually a picture of a beach windbreak, and belongs in the Old Drawings series. It's something I did while at University as a study for a painting which included a figure. Didn't work out.

Crayons?! This makes me want to get out my Crayolas and give it a whirl. I love the line of this. Great job.

I like the detail of the sail, with the effects of light and wind. Nice. Never underestimate the crayon!

Glad you liked it. Wax crayon is an unusual medium for me, but I believe I'd been looking at the work of Paul Harris:
