Little Map (Sweet Square #7)

Illustration of old fashioned nautical map

I'm not much of a water colorist, so I figured Sweet Squares would be a good time to experiment with water colors. I made different squares of washes and then made a doodle inspired by one of the washes. The shape of the colors reminded me of an old-fashioned nautical map, so I drew a small, quick one.

By the way, if you love maps, The Agile Rabbit Book of Historical & Curious Maps, is an excellent book with hundreds of historical, unique, and interesting maps. The book also comes with a CD with the images and a license to use them in limited ways.
