The Three Muses: Charlie Chaplin

Kolme Muusaa haastoivat tekemään kuvan aiheesta "Charlie Chaplin". Oma suosikkini Chaplinin elokuvista on "Kaupungin valot", joten tein altsukirjaani sivun siitä. Otin valokopion tästä kuluisasta still-kuvasta tuosta elokuvasta ja tein siitä vähän omanlaiseni version. Halusin tehdä kuvasta sellaisen, että se 'istuu' altsukirjani muiden kuvien joukkoon - ja samalla korostaa kuvan esittämän hetken herkkyyttä ja kauneutta.

The Three Muses challenged us to make a piece with the theme "Charlie Chaplin". My favourite of Chaplin's films is "City Lights", and so I made a page in my altered book from it. I photocopied this famous still from that movie, and altered it to my own version. I wanted to make the image fit to the visual style of my altered book - and I also wanted to emphasize the delicacy and beauty of the moment depicted in this still.

  5. WOW Eila.
    Did you know HOW I LOVE sceneries ??
    Specialy when they are created by the artist here self !
    I see so many details. That bucket right beneath the rain pipe.
    The flower in Charlies hand and how you past him precisely on the stair-steps.
    The little elements just before the lovely ladie and the bird, ready to take off his cage.
    The coloured dots on the roof !!
    I had to see it twice and ALL THINGS TOGETHER made me APPLAUSE for you.
    What a fantastic page !!

  8. Great minds think alike! I chose City Lights too. Eila, your movie scene is stunning. I love the way you have coloured the picture. It makes it look so alive. It reminds me of the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet - so touching, so romantic. I love seeing your work every week in the Muses challenge.
