Painting Vintage Circus Posters


My life has been consumed lately with painting eight big banners for the play. We are doing Midsummer, but with a twist: vintage circus. 

 

They are fun but a LOT of work. A little frightening with a deadline! Speaking of which, I'd better go paint now... ;)

 

Hip hop

Since bean has such high energy levels, we looked for an outlet that works with winter weather. The solution: a hip hop dance class held just before Abi's ballet class. 

 

He absolutely loves it. 

 

No surprise.

Wait, what??

 

So, funny art story. I made this paper mach√® dog to use as a prop for theatre. 

Apparently it's realistic enough, Matt yelled at it to get off the table. Twice. 

Edit: a few process photos. 

 

 

The head, legs, tail and ears are made from rolls of bubble wrap held together with packing tape. The main body is made with two balloons.
