Illustration Friday

"Kernal"
I found this website some time ago but because of university commitments I couldn't explore it further. Now that I have a bit more time, I'm hoping to tackle some of these projects. The deadline that I have given myself is to produce the illustration in a day. This week's project was for illustrations inspired by the word "kernel" and so I came up with the idea of a corn dolly. This was developed a little further and I combined the idea with harvesting and warning hares in a field.  This is what I came up with. The piece was painted in acrylic paint.

    1. Thanks for your comments. The story is a bit sad. I read somewhere that in ancient times at the time of harvest the hare's (or rabbits) would have to escape the cornfields. Many didn't, as there would be a team of farmer's harvesting the crop from the outside to the centre. Just a way of life and survival back in those days, but it's still sad.
