Genesis 1:9-10 (NLT)
9 Then God said, “Let the waters beneath the sky flow together into one place, so dry ground may appear.” And that is what happened. 10 God called the dry ground “land” and the waters “seas.” And God saw that it was good.
TIME OF DAY:
Light for this scene comes from the 2 volcanoes.
Originally I was just going to draw a quiet scene – maybe the seashore & some rocks emerging from the water. But then, more recently, I decided to draw a more elemental, forceful emergence of the land.
As I researched volcanoes, particularly the colour schemes used to depict them, I came across Joseph Wright’s oil painting “Vesuvius from Portici”. The dominance of the warm colours in this bold painting are amazing. My cartoon is sort of a homage to his colour & design.
