Death at the Circus (33)

SEPTEMBER 30, 2015
Well, I'm back to my Death at the Circus series of drawings. As I said in my last post on Bill Traylor, I ventured into new territory, but wandered right back to the Circus. Looks like I'm not done thrashing about with oddly shaped elephants, rhinos, tents and clowns.
I began using hotpress (smooth) watercolor paper for the Traylor-inspired drawings and decided to do my new Circus drawings on it. Things feel vastly different, the way the watercolor & pencils adhere to the surface of the paper. Not sure if I'll stick with it for a while or return to the more textural sketchbook paper. Will let you know.
