Paulo the Pirate by Fes (otherwise known as Fiona Sansom)

I was delighted to be the next recipient of the Travelling Sketchbook two weeks ago! It arrived on a Saturday morning and for once the Postman didn't have to see me in my dressing gown... I was actually up and about (shock horror!). It was most exciting to see everyones work.

Thanks to Lynda for the lovely note book! Just the right size to pop in my handbag.

After procrastinating, dithering, delaying and generally slacking I finally knuckled down and did some drawing. So here's my entry. I'm in a Pirate mood I think ;0)

This was done digitally, because I would have taken even longer to finish my pages if I'd had to paint it in the traditional manner.

Thank you, Thank you, one and all (she bows modestly).

Glad you like it... I'm chuffed!

Sara, I used Corel Painter IX.5. The first pirate took a couple of days of mucking about, and the other views were about a day (cause I'd worked out what to do). The ship pic, once I'd worked out the perspective (which probably took a day of faffing), was completed in about a day and a half. ;0)
