Here are two new additions to a series of images that I'm putting together inspired by songs of the Grateful Dead. I've been enjoying colouring these in Photoshop and playing around with the program, instead of painting them as usual. The first in this series was done last summer, for Samson & Delilah, (see it here).
I wanted to get the feeling of the songs without pinning them down too much. I focused on one verse, or a few lines for each, working mainly with themes and colours. That way I was able include specific imagery and symbols from each story without them becoming narratives.
