Cirque C.

This weeks theme of the pika artist bootcamp Learning and borrowing from history. We went to a museum to choose one painting for inspiration. I went to the Chabot museum and chose Die Armen from Heinrich Campendonk I was inspired by his composition and the play between fore- and background. I made this illustration.

Nice! I like the colors and especially the facial expressions.

I'm not familiar with the inspiration piece and couldn't find it online, but I do like the way you used foreground, background and space in this.

heel mooi, ik vind hem ook grappig, vooral het figuurtje op de achtergrond, moet ik toch om glimlachen, ook al kijken ze niet blij...
