Color: Ochre / #D89A0A
12" x 16"
About this piece:
Prehistoric painters used 'earth pigments', such as ochre, that were available in the vicinity. These pigments were very important because they would not fade with the changing environment. Men traveled far and wide to maintain their stock of these earth pigments. In fact, historians believe that the motive for all prehistoric mining was man’s need for ochre.
The prehistoric artists used this ochre pigment to create a variety of figurative and abstract images; they mostly depicted hunting scenes or arrangements of animals. Images of humans were rare and even then they were only human-like.
About this artist:
I am an illustrator living in Nashville, TN. My illustration work usually has a sense of humor to it and I like to work using a combination of traditional and digital mediums. My style tends to lean more toward the children's/young adult aesthetic, but I am always experimenting within that style. I also co-run, The Warren, an awesome artist's workspace in East Nashville.
