Illustration Friday - Quite


This one was created a while back using only oils on illustration board. About 20" square. Originally for a software company ad, but has a versatile appeal across all genres. I thought it was approopriate for the Illustration Friday quiet theme because this scene is so super quiet but the next scene is the opposite of quiet! By the way, I never have gone duck hunting and never plan to either. I don't even own a gun or let my 4 and 5 year old children play with toy guns.
