This weeks Illustration Friday topic is Tranquility -which was synchronous since i had been thinking along those lines today, when I was at the physio and doing exercises in water.
My initial thought for tranquility was 'the sea of tranquility' on the Moon. I thought about drawing swimming astronauts or aliens but went off that idea quickly.
I then thought back to today's physio session and my ponderings about being weightless and amniotic fluid and calm. I had been doing shoulder excercises but while i was relaxing later Kate Bush's song Breathing kept coming into my head.
Anyway my final thought was to do a baby swimming in the sea of tranquility ie the womb , and making it a kind of celestial baby - like the man in the Moon's child.
I used my memories of my children's ultrasound [sonogram] tests to draw the foetus and used quite a few of the textures i have been photgraphing recently to get the uterine veiny look and the softness of the baby.
