Pentecost

Not very topical for Lent, but this is a never-to-be-used version of an illustration for a book I'm working on.



And if you click here you can see the first little sketch for a painting I'll be starting this month. Just a concept.

Nice! I really like the start for your painting! What's it for? It would be cool if you were doing it as a fresco... not sure why that pops into my head!

Nice colors. But where is Our Lady?

Wellll.... she's in the newer version. I ought to post the reworked version.

I love that sketch for the painting! The composition is really nice... I have to dig up the old belgian missal I have here because it reminds me of the illustrations in that.

Ben,

Do post the reworked version! But this is great! You've captured a great sense of the jubilation of the event!

You think so? The new version (I'll post it tonight) actually boasts 70% MORE jubilation!

Abigail, dig up your old missal! Post pictures from it. Those old missal illos were great and we should all take some inspiration from them.
