Description Chart of U.S. and British Virgin Islands. Anegada to St Croix.Drawn and painted by hand. Using India ink layered with a watercolor wash.
Ive repeated a style - I created for my Thai chart - two side columns; allowing more depth for the artwork, while still playing within the boundaries of cartography.
Ive included; the Tortola Sloop, sailing ships, most all the bays - especially old favorites like, 'Throw Away Wife Bay' off of Great Camanoe Island (some names just make you wonder).
For the trade wind, I have drawn a misty Saint Ursula with a lamp for her virgin followers.
I've included; reefs, shoals and drops; Pelicans, Magnificent Frigatebirds, game fish, sea turtles, a Nurse Shark, a Spotted Eagle Ray, a Bottle Nose Dolphin and more sea life mixed in with my mermaids and sea monsters.
