Humpty Dumpty

Mixed media on illustration board.

13 x 22,5″

I finished this painting a little while ago. The goal was to include Gavin – the little boy – into the story of Humpty Dumpty. I thought he could be a friend who is having a good time with Humpty Dumpty on the wall. The king’s men are shown as stick figures. I didn’t want to take the focus away from Gavin and Humpty Dumpty by painting full size soldiers. Mini soldiers on sticks were just the perfect solution.

The painting in progress:
