Jacob vs the Angel and Jonah Encounters the Fish


Today's entries are again Biblically related, yet very different. The first, is another oil pastel drawing. It depicts Jonah flailing in a swirling ocean as a fantastic fish opens its mouth ready to swallow him. I used color expressively and tried to arrange the composition in a dynamic way using a series of sweeping diagonal shapes and lines.


The next piece was drawn with charcoal and ink, washed with matte medium. I wanted to show Jacob struggling with the angel for his blessing. An "x" composition is used to zigzag the eye across the page.

Well, that about does it for today. Thanks for looking.
