The Colour out of Space – Concept Art

The Colours Out of Space SMALL
Concept art based on “The Colour out of Space”, H.P. Lovecraft’s short story.

“It was the coroner, seated near a window overlooking the yard, who first noticed the glow about the well. Night had fully set in, and all the abhorrent grounds seemed faintly luminous with more than the fitful moonbeams; but this new glow was something definite and distinct, and appeared to shoot up from the black pit like a softened ray from a searchlight, giving dull reflections in the little ground pools where the water had been emptied. It had a very queer colour […]
All the while the shaft of phosphorescence from the well was getting brighter and brighter, bringing to the minds of the huddled men a sense of doom and abnormality which far outraced any image their conscious minds could form. It was no longer shiningout, it was pouring out; and as the shapeless stream of unplaceable colour left the well it seemed to flow directly into the sky. […] At this point, as the column of unknown colour flared suddenly stronger and began to weave itself into fantastic suggestions of shape which each spectator later described differently” – The Colour out of Space, H. P. Lovecraft
