Carnival Tricks, Series

by Kelly Shoemaker in Miscellaneous
This is my latest little series, “Carnival Tricks.”  It is just a fun series, experimenting with new painting techniques and figure distortions. The first piece I call “Backbend.” The second is “Handwalker aka  Moonrise.” And the third is “Up and Over.” I guess it was time for a break from heavy meanings in my work! I am enjoying this process, starting with a bright single color underpainting, and then working out the figure in a darker but complimentary overpainting. The contortions of the figures here were both fun and challenging!
