The Great Gatsby. by Bethan-Powell The Great Gatsby. by Bethan-Powell
I started painting this the same time as I started reading The Great Gatsby, and I think I was subconsciously influenced!

Black watercolour paint and white pencil on paper.

Prints are available for purchase: society6.com/bethanpowell/grea…

If only this was the cover instead of a shodily drawn pair of eyes on my english book. As a class we discussed whether or not it was a girl or a boy. Like, is it clear it's daisy's eyes or t.j. eckleberg's? That aside, I love the romantic look and this image does bring out the fake life everyone is living in this book. Well done!

This would make a lovely poster for the movie! It looks like a modernized version of the old book cover.
