its friday night so i was thinking about movies. i saw this poster of the silent movie classic and i decided it would be fun to paint . i love painting from old black and whites - inventing colors, using lively brushstrokes, etc. fun, fun, fun. still if i did this again i think i would give the hunchback a better "do". this one kinda looks like a russian hat or maybe even a changing of the guard's hat from buckingham palace. so of course i had to look up what those hats are actually called:
The Guards hats are called Bearskins and they weigh 665 grams, some are over 100 years old and passed down in the family.
who knew? oh you did? well, i didn't. and i doubt i will know it by tomorrow, anyway.
short term memory = zero.
so what was i saying? oh yeah. friday night- silent movie- the hunchback poster - i was saying it was fun, fun, fun. to paint. the movie was with lon chaney: here is how it was described:
In fifteenth century Paris, the brother of the archdeacon plots with the gypsy king to foment a peasant revolt. Meanwhile, a freakish hunchback falls in love with the gypsy queen.
sounds so good, i think i will see if i can rent it for tonight.
