Acrylic, small. I did this during my lunch at work. This is from one of my favorite movies, New World. I love that it was shot with natural light, that there was very little dialogue, that it gave you a sense of how miserable it was the first winter in Jamestown. Most of all, I love Quorianka Kilcher's heartbreaking performance as the doomed Pocahantas and Colin Farrell's John Smith, who was cagey and full of lies. Yes, I know it was a very slow film but I loved that it took it's time. These color sketches are just that; abstract moods of color done quickly. I am practicing brush stroke and playing with color combos. More to follow.
