Scapino, collgae and acrylic
8" x 5" in my art journal

Scapino is another character from the Comedia Dell'arte. I am having fun doing the research and then a collage/painting of a character/clown. This is all in the attempt to improve my drawing-of-people skills. I am also fairly obsessed with Anne Bagby's process and how she makes her own papers and then uses them in collage. I really admire her work.  In this collage/painting, the background was done first. I used a photo reference and painted it in acrylics and then collaged it on top of the background. I then did a very faint black outline around the clown. then I added shadows etc. Great fun!
