Whatever Floats Your Boat...

Life Book 2015, Week 8, led by Mati Rose McDonough.  We are to draw a boat and incorporate some gold into the work.

I like boats.  I like to ride in boats.  Drawing boats - ha!  that's another matter.  I made up this little "love" boat.  It should have oars because that sail isn't going to take me very far.

I was very unhappy with my original work (see below).  One just knows when something is "off."  Adding a couple of brayer layers helped this drawing a lot (IMO).

I love the freedom of this and the thoughts of summer that it brings. You are right -- it's absolutely amazing how the brayer takes it from a technically nice piece to one that is dynamic and filled with energy.
