This piece is inspired by a fantasy adventure that I have been writing. The main character is embarking on a quest. The story revolves around the theme of being lost in the darkness, your problems chasing you, like the monster at the top. The only way for the characters to escape is to let go of the people they have lost and focus on the light. I have used soft tones from an underlay of ink and built the strength of the tones by overlaying with acrylic paint and paint pens.
