Old Fashion Carnival by day
oil on canvas, 30 x 90cm
painted on location - Sun 30 Dec 2012 -(In studio Tues 8 Jan 2013)
It is winter, the days are short, it is just after opening at the Carnival, the time is 2.15 in the afternoon. The crowds have yet to arrive, however il pittore takes advantage of the still dry weather conditions, and makes a go of this fascinating scenery. The assistant to the Anatomy Lesson Professor watches on to the innocence of to little girls sharing some candy floss. Both the century old merry-g0-rounds are in motion. Parents are enjoying themselves, but really the kids are having the time of their lives, and that my friends is what it is all about! Here below, two close ups, for your viewing pleasure.
