This may well be my favorite Pinocchio!I get enough distortion as subtle as it is here to keep me happy; I like the confusion of what's really going on. I love the face, and that nose is very insistent!He's thirsty, methinks..
Wow, clear and direct in painting and subject.
I like your Pinocchio series! There is a playful looseness with this composition that makes it very lively. I absolutely LOVE the brush strokes, as well as the highlights on Pinocchio's form. His played legs are funny – like he's thinking about how in the world he's going to manage to stand up.
