Illustration Friday - "Flight"


"flight"

The topic for this week's Illustration Friday was flight. I have spent the last two days working on a drawing of crows. But tonight after dinner I was playing "airplane" with the Monkey ("Again, again, again, Mommy! I wanna fly!") and had another idea. I scrapped the birds and went for the Monkey in flight as high as the soles of my feet could take her. Go Monkey, fly high!

  7. Thank you everyone! I'm looking at the image and thinking of things I'd like to change with the execution. Maybe I'll have to revisit it. I generally paint in oil, so my water color skills are a little rusty. This is such a fun thing to do!
