  •  Ferris Wheel Stands Tall


    Ferris Wheel Stands Tall

    I went to a Goo Goo Dolls concert at the state fair when I was about 15. Me and my family were able to explore and have fun. You'll find a wide variety of characters. There was a lot of good food you would typically find at a state fair. I find Ferris wheels a very interesting background element. I distorted the Ferris wheel to exaggerate the tallness. I like what the colors in the sunset sky bring to the painting. I'm always trying to experiment with color. I tried to show the excitement of the kids in their facial expressions. I tried to give the painting a more carefree and whimsical feel with the farm animals running around. I thought the pig chasing a dog would be a funny element to add. The junk food and cotton candy are all definitely, without a doubt, necessary parts of the fair. Fried dough is undoubtedly the best.
