Green & Purple Combo

After looking at some sci-fi book illustrations, I wanted to further exaggerate the colour combinations in backdrops of landscapes. What I was looking at whilst painting this was the War of the Worlds book cover pictured below. War of the Worlds is a science fiction novel by H.G. Wells, published in 1897. It was later made into a film in 2005 directed by Steven Spielberg. 51MqGXgWQvL._SX327_BO1,204,203,200_I really like the strong colours in this piece, coming both from the fabric and the paint. This piece reminds me almost of a set design or backdrop for something thats about to happen. What I want to explore further in these pieces is the potential for what could happen in front of these scenes- but not actually painting it in.    img_7457img_7458
