Slither – Illustration Friday – What Lurks Beneath the Surface?

Slither for Illustration Friday

Try this Spotify Playlist to go with the theme.

Swimming in open water is an acquired taste. Some people are fearful of not being able to see or touch the bottom. Others are afraid of what might be lurking beneath and within the water. Fritton lake is not crystal clear it has a peaty, sandy quality to it, everything is tinted a murky yellow; when you come out from the water your skin may sparkle in the sunlight from the particles trapped in the hair on your arms. There will always be a doubt in your mind about anything that touches your skin, was that an eel, a pike, or bit of weed or just a ‘fig box of your homogination’?

Only two weeks now to the Great East Swim – my charity page is HERE – raising funds for Water Aid.  Huge thanks to those who have already contributed.
