The promised land

The promised land is the last project I’m working on. It started from a blurry image I had while I was sleeping. The sharpest part of the image was a somewhat grotesque and red-nosed character, a mixture of clown of horror film and creature  of the Goya’s Caprichos. This figure seems to be parading in front of a group of people and behind them appeared a landscape of countryside, with a distant horizon.

As I usually do in these cases, the next day I tried to sketch the idea:

Nineth sketch. I did an upward composition that in the end I did not follow but I liked it, very much like Carlos Schwabe style.
