Challenge – In The Style Of…..

So this challenge is

…any subject, in any medium, in a First Nations style.

We live on the West Coast and have a huge number of extraordinary artists that paint in this style.

My inspiration was this image from the ‘net; I’m guessing it might be a stencil, but I’m not sure

I drew it out, and included a moon

and added a bit more detail than the original

It was more difficult than I expected.  I’m not very good at accuracy, and this would look better if the lines were more precise and the edges more even.

Then I added some color

and lastly, I added the moon.

I really love this little piece – I might do it on a big canvas as well!
