    Lightbulb Carnevale di Venezia (with completed figure too)

    Just a few minutes to figure out another silhouette and to give some touches ... and we're in the other most famous Carnevale in the world with centuries of renown reputation all over, in Venezia (Venice).
    Actually in Italy there's also Viareggio, in Versilia, as a top event.
    There, since very long time, many big allegorical and satyrical wagons, with huge papier-maché figures, characters and caricatures moving by hidden gears, and disguised people on-board parade along the main street. The parade is traditionally broadcasted all over Italy.
    Many other and different event happen in the various part of our country, such as the ornage fight in Ivrea to celebrate an ancient historical fight of that town with foreigh invading troops.
    BUON CARNEVALE, MARDI' GRAS or however You may call it!

    Great stencil Cesare and it should generate some lively colours.

    Thank You, dear Katie and Gary! Actually I created a stencil rather than using one and it may be used in many ways to control the final figuere tones and textures.

    Anyone willing to give a try also to a New Orleans Carnival illustration?

    I put a thread on the project section, dear Sandra, so I hope someone will accept the challenge to imagine and draw or paint what figure could fit the shape. Thank You!

    Maybe I am, dear Shibui, although now Carnival period is up, today it's Ashes Wednesday, the start of Lent, time of penace up to Easter.
    Remind we should all die and repent!

    A little bit like the Chinese Shadows Theatre, dear Jibes. I find this style to be also quite intriguing because it leaves much to the imagination, thus it could be also interesting and subtly enticing for a simultaneously understated and evocative erotic painting I guess ... Thank You!

    Mi piace molto questa siluette per l'illusione ottica che mi ha prodotto nel primo istante: il pennacchio con le piume tricolori potrebbe essere la testa di una damina che ha per mantello i capelli di quella 'reale'.
    Bella!!

    Grazie Silvia!
    Questo era il secondo della serie delle ombre cinesi, l'altro, sulla seconda pagina di questa galleria, era il Carnevale di Rio de Janeiro.
