Here's a quick color key for a final painting to be completed a little later, although this has worn on me enough as to where this very well might be the final painting. We'll see. If you feel so inclined to add a theme to this image I highly recommend this.

Here's another girl with food on her head. I'll do one more to round everything out. I've been listening to tons of old Bollywood music like Ganga Ki Saugandh to help keep me authentically inspired. Also, I just really like it.

But I thought I'd post it anyway. It's supposed to be something akin to a color key. I guess I do like the colors but the composition leaves much to be desired. I wanted it to look something like a heart buuut. I dunno.ha, I'm just not buying it but I figure it should see the light of day considering how much time I spent on it. ...better stuff next post.

..but If I had I'm sure it would've been haunted. I know I said I'd be absent for a while and then I go and post stuff twice in one day but I really am going of the map soon here. I promise. Anyway, I'm not really used to drawing houses so this is a bit on the stiff side so I'll definitely have to practice with this sort of stuff. Tomorrow will be a "house" day I guess, then back to circus freaks--although I wont be posting them for a while. Really, I mean it. Thanks for looking!

And I've started with the Bearded Lady. I have tons of exploratory sketches for her and all other types of carnies like the Strong man and The Fiji mermaid, so I chose one and dropped some color on it. It's nothing too slick but it's nice to see how things might progress after adding color. I wont be updating as often for a while--I'm starting to buckle down so I can get my portfolio in order. Expect tons of circus freaks and general updating in the future though!
Thanks and see ya soon.

So I decided to go with the yellow/gold color pallet for this one. The color choice may not "pop" as well as a few of the other options but I felt it was a little more original. I also chose to go with birds instead of the monkey so the silhouette would read a bit more clearly. The painting isn't taken to a stage of completion yet, I'll get to that soon enough--I've been pretty busy lately. I think I'll add a few more finished pieces, some sketches and a few environment/props to the "India" series before I move on to a different theme. More post soon!
