Oz Art in Progress from Glenn Alexander Hernandez

This moody, evocative image of “The Road Through the Forest” is from Glenn Alexander Hernandez’s ongoing project of illustrating The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. It’s a digitally-created color sketch for a watercolor he’s planning.

Hernandez is showing the stages of his artwork at his Hermitage Illustration blog. There are character designs, inked sketches, and completed scenes.

Hernandez describes himself as “a Watercolorist in the tradition of Golden Age Illustrators.” His use of line and color reminds my untrained eye of the illustrations of the late Trina Schart Hyman.
