The Kid is an original, signed acrylic painting on canvas by Citrus County Florida artist Michael Arnold.
This painting is from the publicity poster for the 1921 silent film The Kid, written, directed and starring Charlie Chaplin. The painting is 11.5 x 45.5 on canvas primed several times with gesso and tinted with a gesso cobalt blue as the final coat. I then used layers of Prussian blue to paint the image. I utilized a watercolor effect with liquid acrylic and water mixed with the blue.
