High School Play - Lewala

Reynold Brown served as the art editor for the Alhambra City High School Annual in his senior year, 1935. This study was apparantly done after high school, at least it indicates a play for the year after Brown's graduation.

This piece shows a bit more visual complexity than the pieces done for the school annual. Five color are used here including a simple stripe of green which complements the red. The head is more soundly drawn. The design uses repeating diagonals (head band and blanket stripe). The words are distributed top and bottom and on the bottom placed in a diagonal.
Lewala. 5 x 3 1/2" gouache on illustration board.
