Illustration Friday: Strong

It is amazing to me how wind can push water into strong powerful waves. I watched it happen in micro scale in a pool along the shore of the bay the other day. The wind was blowing lengthwise to the pool, on the windward side there were little tiny ripples, but at the other end were wavelets that were 4 times the size of the ripples.

It's it a powerful thing water???? I mean come on. It can be solid or liquid and it's tasty and very dangerous all at the same time. WOW! I love this illustration. Very outside the box Heather. You nailed this one girly!!

Living near the ocean all my life I know just what power it possesses. The use of dark and light really captures it's power. Wonderful!

Nice use of black on this one Heather, it gives it a really cool feel without being creepy.
