Summer Project (more again)

Just a few more concept images from the summer project in progress, i'm illustrating a passage from "The Grapes of Wrath" by John Steinbeck. Been working from both life and photographic references. The aim of the project is to create a sense of place in the final three images.

Summer Project

I know, its been a while since i've updated the blog due to lack of a decent internet connection. Fear not, iv'e been doing work as part of a summer project to illustrate a passage from a novel. I've chosen "The Grapes of Wrath" by John Steinbeck. Here are a few concept and research illustrations iv'e been doing. Nothing is final yet but im working quite a bit with oil paint for this project, i guess trying to improve the use of color in my work. Looking at the american illustrators of the early twentieth century for the right mood and inspiration. More to be added later and it should hopefully become clearer about what im trying to achieve with this project.
