Silence in Heaven

22" x 15", watercolour, 2016

The technical challenge here was to see if I could transform a silhouetted window to look as though the sun was beaming through it. Taking a cue from, and looking at artwork by, one of my favourite illustrators, Bernie Fuchs, I did the best I could. I think the hot spot turned out pretty well, considering I improvised the lighting in this scene. The lighting on the woman, on the other hand...

The model here is the same young woman I photographed when she was in City of Angels (her cast photo is in this post); I did a number of small mini posters featuring much of the cast, and some in their double roles.
