Abandoning the Hispaniola

I bought a pad of sepia paper on a whim and decided to use it to add an extra layer to my silhouette work. Thebrown seemed to suit ‘Treasure Island’ – it reminded me of drawing a treasure map (which I actually haven’t done). Being able to draw in white helped break up this image by adding waves. I really enjoyed drawing the ship as well and now feel a bit more confident in tackling ‘Voyage of the Dawn Treader’ which will be my winter project.
