Panto Season II
Another 10ft x 5ft wingcloth completed – this is a quayside inn, and will be stage left, if I remember correctly, for Act 2 Scene 1. As ever in this group, there have been a couple of setbacks in the run up to this production, and with slightly less than two weeks before opening, there seems like far too much left to do.
As a result, the cloths become less ambitious – my design for this one had weary mariners enjoying the hospitality of the inn behind all that stuff in the window. As time ticked away, I cut out everything other than the beer barrels and Cedric the parrot.
Someone once said that painting is a process of accepting a series of small defeats – this is doubly true for scenery painting!
