Wanderers

This piece focuses on the relationship between a ship’s navigator and his guide. The gull searches for his flock as a weary sailor looks on, the bird as his skybound companion. Together they fly among the stars, both hoping that the sky will lead them home.

    • Hi Kim! Yeah, I paint the whole thing in watercolour, then take it into Photoshop and clean up edges and add little details. I like this method because it takes a lot of the pressure off me when I’m painting traditionally, so I (usually) work quicker knowing I can fix things later. Thanks for sharing this painting on your facebook page by the way, I really appreciate it!

  1. I would have loved to have had a book by you when I was a kid… Heck, I would love to see an illustrated book by you now! Great combination of accessibility, simplicity, and excellent execution.
