There's a Party at Gatsby's by mkce There's a Party at Gatsby's by mkce
This was my Drawing Final where our inspirations had to be from movie and a master artist. I picked The Great Gatsby(1974 version) and Henri Toulouse Lautrec as my inspirations. I really love the Roaring 20s and Lautrec's "party" works seemed to fit perfectly with The Great Gatsby concept :)

This piece is actually 8 ft. x 3.5ft lol Here's the progress to prove it! ^^
Done in Acrylic and Chalk pastel

Critiques are most welcomed!

The Great Gatsby (original title: The Great Gatsby) is a novel by the American writer Francis Scott Fitzgerald published for the first time in New York April 10, 1925 and defined by T.S. Eliot as "the first step forward made by American fiction after Henry James."

Now I know that I must read this novel. Every illustration I see of it makes me want to read it more and more. The color pallet you chose for this is such a good one. Gives it a warm, enticing feel and the expressions of the people play well. Great job~! :nod:
