The Talisman - In Progress

Here is my illo for Illustration Friday this week. Wow, I'm actually doing another one in watercolor! I'm insane. Really.

Compositionally I think I could have done this differently, but eh, it's working for me. There will be more fish to help balance it out, but I'm envisioning them to be further back in the distance so they will be done in watercolor. All inked and ready to go...so who knows how late I'll be up tonight painting. :D

A sketch I did in my sketchbook today. It started out as an example or "draw with me" with one of my private students, but then turned out to be a full blown pencil drawing. I added the envelopes with hearts to be a symbol of "talisman"...just to link it to the theme for fun.
