Original Signed Gouache Western Painting by Doug Wildey
Original western gouache painting by cartoon and comic book artist Doug Wildey (1922-1994). Authentic very busy western painting signed by Doug Wildey . This is thought to be part of a series of sketches prepared fro a show called "Mr Magic".
The painting depicts a collage of scenes from a magic side show being performed to an animated crowd, to the Conestoga wagon traveling across country, a hot air ballon and a hostile encounter with some Indians. Amazingly detailed in every facet this displays the accomplished talent and thought that went into a western storyboard of the 1960's.
The influence of cinema on his work is evident especially in this panel which is staged like a film scene. The characters have a realistic, illustrative look to them along with a consistent luster of professionalism.
