Robin Hood Final
Here is the final painting for the next Robin Hood novel, Robin and the White Heart, Oil, 18 x 24, the third in the series of covers I've done for Airship 27. I'll have a link to the book when its out. It occurred to me to make the bow and arrow glow red when it passed over the body of the Deer Spirit as a symbol of violence and death. In some respects I wish I had painted this one twice the size, but oh well, I wanted to get this done sooner as it had been a while coming and the publisher was getting anxious.
