Illustration Friday - Ripple



My Illustration Friday submission this week which hopefully will help to raise some money for the big clean-up operation required to help the wild animals affected by the Gulf oil spill. It's an original watercolour painting of a pair of gannets on a black background. I love gannets - they're stunning birds and I chose the subject because I believe a northern gannet was one of the first birds to be picked up and cleaned after the gulf oil spill.
Have a look at the rest of the artwork on http://ripplesketches.blogspot.com/
