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
