Luke 10:30 (NLT)
Jesus replied with a story: “A Jewish man was travelling on a trip from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he was attacked by bandits. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him up, and left him half dead beside the road.”
TIME OF DAY:
Not specified in story – I made it mid morning.
Harsh, strong desert lighting. I have used warm colours on the colour wheel (yellow & oranges) as the dominant hues used in this scene. I have used cool blues & violets in the shadow areas to contrast with the warm colours of the harsh desert sunlight. Short shadows indicate that the sun is overhead.
Three robbers or bandits & the Hebrew victim.
There are two versions of this scene:
01) (Previous page) Luke 10 – Parable of the good Samaritan SET01 – Scene 01 – Beaten up.
The original drawing, which has rather grey/brown tones.
02) (This page) Luke 10 – Parable of the good Samaritan SET02 – Scene 01 – Beaten up.
The “new” (2016) drawing, which has brighter reds, oranges & yellow tones.
As you may notice from the titles above, there are two complete sets of the 5 scenes that comprise the story of the good Samaritan. The principle difference between them is colour: SET 01 is the original series of drawings, which have rather grey/brown tones, whilst SET 02 has brighter reds, oranges & yellows throughout the series of cartoons.

Jericho is off to the left, Jerusalem off to the right.
In SET 02, I actually finished scene 03 – Good Samaritan SET02 in 2015 first, before I finished the other scenes. Scene 03 was a special commission for a local primary school, so it was needed first. I have just completed colouring up the other 4 scenes in this set, & made available on the BC website.
The primary school wanted 4 large canvases with my illustrations on, each highlighting one of four values of the school. Apparently the canvases have been well received & are helping to illustrate the Christian ethos of the school.
