Pirates! the preview . . .

I am working on a new image
here is a partial sketch

and the thing that I am excited about . . . I went out and splurged on a tube of cerulean blue.
Its a little tube that set me back quite a bit, but a robin's egg sky cannot be achieved without it.
Did you know that in the renaissance patrons would have sections of contract devoted to exact amounts of area that had to be covered by lapis lazuli (cerulean blue) before they would commission a painting? Its true. Because that stuff is expensive.
