Graham Sutherland - War Paintings

A World War II artist whom I have found whilst researching World War II art and history. Sutherland's paintings manage to capture a rather distinguished amount of depression and abandonment which portray a great sense of emotion which people who these homes belonged to would have felt during the devastation of The Blitz. The moody colour scheme and harsh ink outlines work in his favour as the help add to the distraught emotion being portrayed. From the colour scheme alone the viewer of the painting can begin to feel the sense of emotion which the artist it attempting to portray, so from this I think some careful thought will be needed when working out the colour scheme for my animation.
