Paint Party Friday: Fasnet/Carnival



,,Wasserfratze" (fineliner and colored pencils)

Die Fasnet ist derzeit in vollem Gange. Ich bin ja kein Fasnetsfan und daher auch kein Hästräger, aber die Kostüme einer hiesigen Narrengruppe haben mir so gut gefallen, dass ich sie zeichnen musste. Und für mehr Kunst besucht wie immer Paint Party Friday!


Carnival is in full swing at this time of the year. I'm not a big carnival fan and do not belong to any carnival society, but those costumes of a local carnival society are so nice and colorful I had to draw them. And for more art visit Paint Party Friday!

  3. Lovely Mardi Gras colors! The masks look a tiny bit scary, but I always think masks are a bit scary.

  5. The masks are scary, as the carnival customs in my area are deeply rooted in pagan traditions and the masks often symbolize spirits, bad and good, witches, legendary figures etc.

  13. Das Wort Fasnet und das Kostuem in Deiner Zeichnung zeigen mir, dass Du aus Ba-Wue kommst? Da habe ich auch gelebt, bevor wir in die USA gingen. Ich erinnere mich an die Narrenumzuege in Rottenburg am Neckar - und ich bin auch kein Fasnetsfan.
