Art Studio Revamp – The Clown Alley Blocking In Color


Art Studio Revamp – The Clown Alley Blocking In Color

I am in the process of creating a Circus Theme Art Studio Revamp of my art studio design.  The room was originally the bonus room above the garage in my home.  My Hubby let me have it as my studio. We took out the carpet and put in wood floors ( saved the carpet in the attic) and installed  some new lighting.  I moved in.  I lived with the yucky color on the walls for 6 years. Feeling uninspired with the color but to frugal to turn around and change out perfectly good new paint I lived with it.  However with time the paint needed to be touched up or changed and I asked my Hubby if he minded if I did some creative work with the paint job.  He told me to go for it… that was back in May 2016 I got started.  First came the red and white stripes to make the room look like the inside of a circus tent.  Then in July came a cut out in the tent in the back corner in which I placed a naughty monkey with scissors above my  entrance door (he cut the whole) and a small clown on the floor with a bannana trying to coax the monkey down.  In the hole I placed clouds, hills, trees a small lake and a hot air balloon.  (might add a few clowns to this down the road) In August I worked on the opposite corner where I placed my Baby Elephant Balloon Sales Team along with a big bunch of colorful balloons.  Then I moved on the the Medallion around my fan in the center of the room.  I changed the fan out to a more colorful option and started to work.  Photos and videos of the stripes being created and the two back corners of my room and the creation of the fan Medallion are in previous blog posts on this blog.   Now my attention has turned to the stage wall.  I am currently working on the 24 clown strong Stage area in the front of my room.   For now I thought I would bring my blog a little up to date with photos and videos of the Creation of the stage for my clown alley. I am painting live on facebook and have photos and videos for you to see of the entire process.  It has been a fun journey.   Enjoy and leave me comments!

Each clown I used gave me permission to use their image. Each clown is trademarked so the replication I will be doing of each clown will be as exact as I can make it with the twinkle in the eye and the joy on their faces.  Once I actually start painting the detail stage of each clown there will be anywhere from 6-12 hours each just on detail and that does not include basic sketching or blocking in color which is what this post is covering…

Each the clown image will not look right or completed until I do get to the final detail stages.  Until then each clown can go through some pretty incomplete and even scary stages. Have faith it will look right when I am done with them.

The layout with Clowns in place.

Adding Color – blocking in base colors that will be added to and painted on top of to create final image.

 

 

Now to continue to bring each clown to life one at a time… Stay Tuned

Art Studio Revamp – The Clown Alley Clowns and Sketch


Art Studio Revamp – The Clown Alley Clowns and Sketch

I am in the process of creating a Circus Theme Art Studio Revamp of my art studio design.  The room was originally the bonus room above the garage in my home.  My Hubby let me have it as my studio. We took out the carpet and put in wood floors ( saved the carpet in the attic) and installed  some new lighting.  I moved in.  I lived with the yucky color on the walls for 6 years. Feeling uninspired with the color but to frugal to turn around and change out perfectly good new paint I lived with it.  However with time the paint needed to be touched up or changed and I asked my Hubby if he minded if I did some creative work with the paint job.  He told me to go for it… that was back in May 2016 I got started.  First came the red and white stripes to make the room look like the inside of a circus tent.  Then in July came a cut out in the tent in the back corner in which I placed a naughty monkey with scissors above my  entrance door (he cut the whole) and a small clown on the floor with a bannana trying to coax the monkey down.  In the hole I placed clouds, hills, trees a small lake and a hot air balloon.  (might add a few clowns to this down the road) In August I worked on the opposite corner where I placed my Baby Elephant Balloon Sales Team along with a big bunch of colorful balloons.  Then I moved on the the Medallion around my fan in the center of the room.  I changed the fan out to a more colorful option and started to work.  Photos and videos of the stripes being created and the two back corners of my room and the creation of the fan Medallion are in previous blog posts on this blog.   Now my attention has turned to the stage wall.  I am currently working on the 24 clown strong Stage area in the front of my room.   For now I thought I would bring my blog a little up to date with photos and videos of the Creation of the stage for my clown alley. I am painting live on facebook and have photos and videos for you to see of the entire process.  It has been a fun journey.   Enjoy and leave me comments!

At this point I am ready to project my clowns on the wall and start with the sketching and then the painting which I know will take a while.  The sides of the frame I am going to refrain from completing at this time because I am not sure of the placement of the clowns and a few of them might be in front of some of the frame design.   Each clown I used gave me permission to use their image. Each clown is trademarked so the replication I will be doing of each clown will be as exact as I can make it with the twinkle in the eye and the joy on their faces.  Once I actually start painting the detail stage of each clown there will be anywhere from 6-12 hours each just on detail and that does not include basic sketching or blocking in color which is where I will be starting once the sketch is to where I am satisfied.

I do project my images on the wall.  I use the projector for placement and to get the features right.  However the clown image will not look right or completed until I do get to the final detail stages.  Until then each clown can go through some pretty incomplete and even scary stages. Have faith it will look right when I am done with them.

Art Studio ReVamp – The Balloon Sales Team Videos


Hello Everyone,

Art Studio Revamp is in full swing…

Across from the hole in the tent in the opposite corner is where my Balloon Sales Team is located.

The main salesman is Shorty with his sweet expression he will sell you a balloon. The balloon are all above him.  On the adjacent wall is Bob he has been promoted to sales manager so he is just standing there watching Shorty work.

This is how my mind works I come up with little stories for my images.

Here are photos of the painting  progression of this part of the art studio redesign…. I will follow this post with one that contains the videos that were shot during the painting of this section.

I still need to touch up and clean up the trim area and I made add gold accents to the Elephant pad under Shorty but for the most part this is done.

Next is the creation of the Madalin around my fan – the changing out of the fan to a more colorful option and the actual design of the big circular madalin around my fan with a circus theme.

Love ya all

Art Studio ReVamp – Videos of Hole in Tent


Hello Everyone,

Art Studio Revamp is in full swing…

My tent has been vandalized by a Monkey who got ahold of a pair of scissors and cut a corner out of the tent.   Thru this hole we can see blue skies, a hot air balloon, mountains, rolling hills and a lake so far….  We also have the monkey over the door with the scissors in hand and a clown down below trying to coax the monkey down with a banana.

Here are videos of the painting  progression of this part of the art studio redesign….

 

 

 

 

The next set of video’s and photos will cover the opposite corner…Still lots to do ….

Love ya all
