Inspiration: Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby

Time and time again I come back to the Great Gatsby for inspiration. It all started a few years ago when I read the book after hearing that Carey Mulligan was going to be playing Daisy. Then I painted this…

This has proved to be one of my most successful pieces to date in the shop. The original sits on my desk right by my side as I work, and serves to remind me what a turning point it made for my art. There’s something about her and her expression that I just connect with.

So for now here’s a quick painting from the trailer! And although I now have to wait until 2013 to see this film, these beautiful images will keep me inspired!
