New image: “Expediency”
It’s not so straight forward to explain the title. But I can say that what was originally going to be something angular turned into a kind of dark scenic. Am I pleased with the result? Yes.
The more I look at it, the more I see in the textures and colours. A note on the colours as well… I didn’t decide on the “city in flames” idea until right at the end. Also because the whole image is quite dark, it allows the colours to be subdued and still be lively. It’s this kind opposite that I like very much when I look at illustrations and design work.Here’s a detail shot to show what I mean.
Of course most of the design work I produce is more targeted and functional – so it’s quite a luxury to let the mind run free on personal illustration work.
