Illustration Friday : Sea

Meet Antoinette. Antoinette watched Jaws one too many
times. As hard as she tries to relax and have a good time,
she can't help thinking about what lies beneath as she
stands in the water. She is terrified. And when she feels
that way, her eyes do something funny.























Antoinette was painted in watercolor and ink on
2.75"x3.75" amalfi cotton rag paper.

"...despite the fact that she's only in two feet of water at the local swimming pool." I love this! She's the reluctant heroine.
