The Circus Procession

This is a 30"x 40" painting created in the Fall of 2020. This was painted on heavyweight Muslin using Rosco paints. The painting was hand drawn on paper and pounced onto the flat. This took two weeks to create and finish. 

The project was to create a vintage travel poster. Instead of creating an art deco styled poster, I went with a more challenging and dimensional image. The colors and overall playfulness of the image are what really stuck out to me. 

Some of the techniques I used, but are not limited to are...

• Blending

• Glazing

• Lining

• Color Matching

• Scumbling

• Lettering
