Ellen Li Elface Bearskin

Illustrations from earlier this year based on the folk tale Bearskin. The story exists in quite a few different cultures, but what they all have in common is a man wearing a bearskin and not washing or shaving for many years (which was actually the reason why I chose the story!) These were some of the more successful paintings done to test out the mood and style of the illustrations. These lead on to the paintings of the nine skin walkers posted earlier.
