11″ x 11″ Gallop through the depths is a simple sketch on antique paper. The map is from an old Rand McNally atlas and shows the Soviet Union. It was missing a dragon icon, warning of monsters in the deep, so I gave it one. Sea horses have always inspired me and making this a more fantastical sort with leg-like appendages felt right.
The photos are not the best, but the piece is framed and hung for Art Every Day month, day two – I started it yesterday, sketching in my car after work, and colored and framed it this morning. By Heather Brush.
