Braving The Storm
Digital Art - Digital Painting/photographic Art
Another in my "Sea Stories" collection in the "Down to the Sea in Ships" series and is based once again on some small, rather faded black and white sketches in an 1840s book. Both the book and the illustrations are in the public domain. I enlarged the original drawings using an old artists' technique taught to me by my cousin (who is a fine artist). The technique involves transferring lines from small squares drawn on the original image to larger squares or graph paper. In this case, I scanned the original image onto 1/8 inch graph paper and enlarged to 1/2 inch paper - and this technique works wonderfully for me because my free-hand drawing skills leave quite a bit to be desired! The enlargement was then hand-painted digitally with texture added.
I think of the journey each of us is on...our own personal quest for peace,
for truth, for wholeness...the journey of self-discovery -
and it takes me to the sea.
"The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore"
Vincent van Gogh
