The Ambush

serena malyon

So this illustration is of a Robin Hood-type group of outlaws who are being ambushed. The illustration was supposed to be of a procession, and I wanted something with a lot of movement and immediacy, so this theme worked well. I think some of the background figures still need refining, they were a bit too small for me to detail in wet on wet oil paint.

The finished oil painting of this charcoal study.
