After the news was filled with pictures and videos of the storms and flooding around Britain i thought it was a good chance to base a illustration on the issue.
The illustration i made i inspired by John Martin’s Joshua commanding the sun to stand still. i used scan of a wave created by painting on water technique and digital painting, the outcome is not as good as i would have liked, i feel that it is very simple and basic with little detail. The wave is probably the best element in the illustration, to further this illustration i would need to add more layers of detail for the cliff side and people. In fairness when seen at close up or at a big scale details of the creases on the people jackets and strand of grass can be seen but when at a small scale it just merges into the rest of the colours so them sort of details would need to be refined to make the illustration more successful.
