Theater Schmeater Mural-Pulcinella or Pierrot




Pulcinella came to be characterized by white baggy clothing and a sugar loaf hat. He is either stupid pretending to be crafty or crafty pretending to be stupid. Punch in the Punch and Judy pantomimes is descended from Pulcinella, as is Pierrot.





I developed the sketch to have The Doctor and Pulcinella facing each other. The sketch is 2 squares by 5 squares so the figure on the wall is 2 feet by 5 feet.




The color sketches are taped on the wall for reference. I roughed in the main colors on The Doctor and my daughter, Jessamyn Bateman-Iino, roughed in Pulcinella's colors. This consists of putting down the basic colors with little detail work. The Doctor's plague mask is visible  on the left.
