Summer cartoon : giraffe with parasol
15 x 10 inch - Fineliner and Gua on paper
Cartoon by Martin Missfeldt - November 15, 2006
A young woman goes walking on a windy spring day. Besides her stands a boy. She is dressed with an airy, far skirt, which flutters merrily in the wind. From the strong sun it protects its juvenile face with a sun screen, which with the wind not at all is so simple. Their shade falls on the flower-scattered meadow in the foreground.
The giraffe version works more stably. Despite the wind the giraffe is certain. The picture is times-technically rather problematic. The selected technology (Gua) cannot catch the liquid Tupfigkeit of the Monet of oil picture so quite. In particular the sky and/or the clouds succeeded only centralmagnificently.
The selected farmer wisdom umspielt the two central topics of the picture: Weather and time. " The wind may blow as it wants, Easter comes before the end of April ".
