Cool! I really like how the mirror looks, as well as the “abyss” in front of it.
As for me, I got into my painting – big time, but I accept the suggested format, so I’m not going to reveal the whole picture yet either. Instead, here are two details, each containing numerous details….
As you can see I am painting in black and white at the moment. Color and additional details come at a later point.
For instance, the main character in front of the mirror will probably be much more “fleshy” and muscular.
In the second picture is one of the scenes that shows something that is happening in the ring, a boy infatuated with it all, and right at the entrance of the circus tent, a rabbit that’s coming out of a top hat. The magic is spilled right at the entrance, so to speak, but that doesn’t make a bit of difference.
The child is outside the ring, but it can’t wait to join the circus. What it doesn’t know is that it is already chained to it, and doesn’t have a choice but to eventually become part of the spectacle. The nail is stuck into the ground inside the ring (not visible in the above picture, obviously) and would pull the child in to face the same direction as everyone else who is “playing along”. Direction, and who is facing which, is important in my painting, but that will be more clear when a bigger part of the picture is visible.
