Flying Circus WIP 1
This project is a little different to my usual portraiture. I’ve been toying with the idea of doing a circus painting and I wanted to have a play with creating a landscape. Somehow the two ideas collided, mixed with a particularly odd dream and refined themselves while I worked on a very boring spreadsheet. The result is a literal flying circus in convoy on its way to an Emerald City like location (It isn’t supposed to be the Emerald City but that’s what it reminds me of)
This is the very early stages of this painting where the only thing that I am working on is getting my idea down on paper and trying out colour. I need to tweak some of the perspective but otherwise I’m happy with where I’m going.
