Teal’s Race – Page37

It was a perfect day for sailing

Teal’s Race is the fourth story in the On The Beach Story Collection by Christopher Green. This story is is to be published in January 2023 https://www.blossomspringpublishing.com/shop/on-the-beach/linkhttps:// Ideas for Christopher’s stories were easy to visualise as ideas though technically boats were challenging. In the last of the three images is my original rough sketch where scale hadn’t yet been researched its a boat note not sea worthy on a windy sea.

The story opens on page 37 and two illustrations were submitted for this page with the one above “and its keel cut deep into the sand” accepted for publication. Both of these were drawn over a lightbox onto seawhite cartridge paper. using a fine liner pen. This was different from my usual dip pen but I adapted to it.
