Notoriously Morbid: The Winchester Gospels

The Winchesters. 
Two brothers who've been to Hell and back, literally. Their story pulls you in like very few things on television right now. In the episode "The Monster at the End of This Book", Castiel tells Dean that their story will come to be known as "The Winchester Gospels."
That line struck me. When I think of gospels, I think of music. The music in Supernatural is as deeply woven into the story line as the Impala or the monster they're fighting that day. That's why we decided to pick a song for the characters we especially love, one that we feel tells a lot about who they are, their own personal gospel.

Each color was created with more in mind than just the tones of the show. We thought about the characters and who we see them as. We hope you enjoy our take on The Winchesters & Co.
It's no secret that I'm a bit of a Supernatural fangirl. Just a little. So when I saw that Notoriously Morbid had a whole collection devoted to the show, The Winchester Gospels, I just had to pick it up. And luckily there are some utterly gorgeous colours in this collection, including a bunch of duochromes, and I'm a sucker for duochromes.

Swatches are done over Smashbox 24hr Primer on the left and Pixie Epoxy on the right and photographed in natural light. Descriptions in italics come from the Notoriously Morbid site.

Notoriously Morbid Sympathy for the Devil

Sympathy for the Devil - "Now if you'll excuse me, I have a little Hell to raise." ~Crowley

Loyalty is worth more than sin in Hell. An ash gray with red, green and gold sparks and a hellacious red shift.

Wayward Son - "Dad's on a hunting trip and he hasn't been home in a few days..." ~Dean
