Original illustration of exterior historic carousel


This is an original and authentic illustration of the exterior historic 1921 Dentzel Carousel at Glen Echo Park in Potomac, Maryland. This carousel is notable for its preserved original structure through years of quality maintenance. Additionally. This carousel is known for its detailed and colorful design with realistic animal rides on the interior, carvings, rich and bright colors, mirrors and famous organ music. As you can see, the exterior architecture of the carousel is very colorful with a dome shaped building roofed with with greens, yellows, creams, pinks, complimented by an impressive entrance way of brick walls, metal rails and windows. The artist (myself) has been visiting the park since a child, and now appreciates visiting with my own family seasonally. The handmade illustration began with a graphite sketch of the exterior on acid free fine tooth surface quality art paper. Once the original sketch was complete, including the details of the subject, I transitioned to phase two, which was coloring the subject with real wood quality colored pencils and watercolor pencils. During this phase, I focused on the subjects architectural details, making sure to include all the details on the exterior of building and the environmental factors surrounding it. The illustration of this particuar subject is in the day light with mostly clear blue skies scattered with white clouds above. Phase three was the transition to the use of acrylic paint. This was the last phase prior to completion, providing a more realistic animated perspective of the subject in it’s most natural form. Upon completion, I sprayed the illustration with clear acrylic sealant for preservation and protection of the original painting. This illustration would make for an ideal gift for someone who’s interested in historic architecture and carousels, or simply be a nice addition to an existing collection. The print version of the Original final illustration is available for purchase. Please enjoy.
