Black and White Mural

I think I like this mural on the road leading west out of Cane Garden Bay even more than I like the Zion Hill mural.

The black and white line-drawing style of it always makes me think it's been done with charcoal, or with pen and ink, rather than with paint, as it must have been done.

 There's such an unfinished, sketched-out look to it, like the stencil for a tattoo. I especially like the smudginess in the representation of the sea.

The left side has hints of color, as though perhaps this truly was a sketch, and some comic book colorist never got around to finishing the job.
