Luke 19:4 (NLT)
So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree beside the road, for Jesus was going to pass that way.
TIME OF DAY:
The time of day is not specified in the verse above. I have set this scene in the late morning, as in Scene 01.
Strong overhead sunlight from the left casts shadows of the figures to the right.
Zacchaeus climbing a tree, crowd of Hebrew people.
I had to take a photograph of myself to get the figure right for Zacchaeus climbing the tree in this scene! I also took lots of photo’s of my back for all the figures looking at Jesus!
I’ve used the same idea of the crowd (represented by simple dark shapes) in this picture which I have used in the previous scenes. It gives the sense of a multitude of figures without me having to draw each one!
I liked including the two children in this scene, who are watching Zacchaeus as he scrambles up the tree. It’s nice to have children in a crowd scene. I usually have them noticing things the adults are missing!
