A Bigger Splash - Little White Lies

From an open call for portraits of Tilda, this illustration was one of two selected by the films director Luca Guadagnino for an honourable mention. The brief outlined three colours we had to use. The film wasn’t out at the time so I took inspiration from a still I selected from the trailer. I wanted to get across Tilda’s characters elegance which was evident from the trailer. Drawing parallels between the film, which featured a swimming pool, and David Hockney’s painting ‘A Bigger Splash’, I gave a suggestion of the lines of a pool, the similar quality of light which the film and painting had and the recognisable splash motif.
