Big Top Under a Blue Sky
8x10 oil on canvas
This was the 2nd of two paintings I did last Friday (wasn't quite so happy with the first version.) Turns out painting a big white tent is a whole lot harder than I'd thought it would be! The Sarasota Circus sets up for the month of February over by UTC in a vast, empty field and I remember thinking last year as I drove by it on the interstate how I'd like to paint it one of these days. The Light Chaser's "Paint Sarasota! Paint Out" kicked off this past week, so that was as good an excuse as any to give it a whirl!
