Happy Friday everyone. I’m having a lot of fun painting this picture. I painted the sky first, and will let it dry and will bring in some color later on, I then painted the fire trail, but left the alter and burning sacrifice behind the figure as I wanted to jump in and paint the figure, which is why that area is gray for now.

I’ve still got a long ways to go, and I can see the finished painting in my imagination, with the large crowds and all the prophets of Baal. I’ve got a lot of water and reflections to add to the foreground, which will be a lot of fun to paint, and will go out and brave the cold over the next few weeks to get the correct reflections of the water for reference. The holiday’s have turned what should be a 10 day painting into a month, but oh well!


About the Author Kyle 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.
