acrylic on board
Contained in Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest are numerous passages that beckon to be illustrated. In particular are the passages that describe the visions/daydreams/delusions of Chief Bromden. I started to create a series of Illustrations from theses passages , but they were put on the back burner while I worked on my thesis. During the week long workshop with Gary Kelley and Chris Payne, held this past July in Hartford, I had the opportunity to work on one of these illustrations. In an earlier post I showed my preliminary sketches and a digital color comp and so I decided to show the piece close to finish. It is a relatively small piece measuring 6"x13" , and is acrylic on illustration board. This painting was done using a very limited palette consisting of five colors, ultramarine blue deep, cad yellow lemon, alizarin crimson, burnt sienna, and white.
