The Yearling

From The Yearling by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. “Fodder-wing’s silence was intolerable. Now he understood. This was death. Death was a silence that gave back no answer. Fodder-wing would never speak again.” The original version was my entry for the 2013 Tomie dePaola prize. This is my fourth or fifth stab at it, mostly experimenting with finding the right mix of media. Watercolor and black colored pencil
