Rough

It has been confirmed . . . I am going mad! I had it in my head that the theme at Illustration Friday this week was rough, so I did my illustration, put it up and then ... realised everyone else had illustrated 'crunchy' - the correct word. I'm just going for a lie down now . . .

The sea has been really rough lately and I love it like this

So it was 'crunchy'! Who cares?? This is great, Nicky! :)

Nice work anyway. You should submit 'rough' as a theme and you'll already have an illustration lined up and ready to go :)

Well, waves can be crunchy this week!! They're great!! I love the colours you've chosen!

Well, it's beautiful nonetheless! So much energy in a balanced way. It's funny, I kept thinking the prompt was Crushed, but didn't so so far as to create a piece. We all benefited from your confusion :) Be well!

The rough waves crashed against the cliff making crunchy noises! Hope that makes you fell better :) I love to swim in the sea and rough weather is always a dampener for me!

I am late but I am totally agree with you.
I feel rough lately but good rested.
Really love the idea, composition and colours that you used:)

SO COOL! I look out of our window and see the crazy whipped up action , white caps and turbulance on the bay- your illustration captures it perfectly!
