Tundra Seeker by JillHoffman Tundra Seeker by JillHoffman
This is a finished commission.
I was given 5 words to start a concept from, more so free association sketch. It has weaved into a narrative illustration of sorts. I love using a variety of things in my paintings. It measures 8 by 11 inches.

Materials used: Bristol paper, india ink, acrylic washes and touches of colored pencil & gouache.


Thank you Inku-inku for the DD suggestion! And thank you to everyone who commented. An awesome surprise to come back to! :dance: soo happy!
