Preliminary drawing for the painting of Elijah calling down fire from Heaven. I still have quite a bit more to do, prophets of Baal, and crowds and such. I want to show the scope and magnitude of just how tall it would be to see fire coming from the sky, and what that may have looked like. The contrast between Elijah, his back to the fire, neutral cool colors, calm demeanor, and the prophets of Baal, illuminated by the fire and full of fear. Elijah’s hand is planted firmly on a rock, head covered.elijah_drawing_web

About the Author Kyle Douglas Henry

I grew up in the Atlanta, Georgia area (small town called Lithonia to be exact) and started drawing at an early age. After high school, I entered the commercial art program at Pensacola Christian College. There I was able to work as an illustrator in the art studio of A Beka Book, where I worked for 3 years. After graduation I pursued a career of freelance illustration and continued learning my craft by studying with great artists and illustrators both past and present. I am fascinated by light and how it relates to edges and color. My goal is that each of my paintings capture the emotion of the subject, and not just the mere superficial facts. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if I can help in any way.
