|8"x10" Study for Wall Mural by CST, 2011|
"In America the biggest is the best."Roy Lichtenstein Read more:Roy Lichtenstein was one of the most important artists associated with American Pop Art.
My hope for this study is to paint a removable wall mural for my granddaughter, bigger for sure, best remains to be seen. It's composition began as a contour drawing and has evolved into a cartoon-like acrylic wash. Painting the sides created a full escape into the playful world of make-believe.
The comments on my newest painting:
- Love the colors, wow, BRIGHT!
- So cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
- Really cute.
- Reminds me of Paint-by-numbers.
- Colors of a Nursery.
- Cartoon-like and Playful.
- Love it!
Imagining a place, a 2-year old would love to be during playtime or bedtime is a challenge. Breaking the elements into simple brush strokes, values and hues create an interaction on a simpler less-realistic level. Follow the gum drops down the path and be reminded of being a kid at heart again, at least for a few minutes.
