Painted Cut-Out Figure

February 26, 2012

Here’s something I’ve dug out of my storage bin. It’s an old cut-out figure painted on illustration board. It was painted with acrylic. I did a series of these for awhile using dolls and stuffed animal figures back in the art school days of my ancient history. Some of them, as this figure once was, were simply hung by a string on the back and dangled like a mobile. Others were more intricately made mechanisms that could be held by a stick and their arms and legs would move by pulling strings like they were puppets.

Sadly, all the others have disappeared over time, or may have secretly escaped their storage cages. I do rather like the painting technique and color used back in those days. I was somewhat influenced by the painter Wayne Thiebaud at the time.
