Our Frenchman horse sits silhouetted on a fiery orange background among a charred black. The subtle notes of brown texture look like aged flyers having been layered band ads on the Frenchman street post. It feels like standing under a dim streetlight in the evening. The darkness encompasses you and only small pockets of light from the music venues seem to guide you along the street.
To further emulate, the lighting on the horse himself is highlighted to appear under a white spotlight on stage. The Horse is fully dressed in his bridle, his mane has been slicked on top of his head, and ready to perform for the Frenchman masses. His eyes are exhilarated locking your gaze in.
The color pallet selected was minimal sticking is a rusty red as a nod to the weathered iron, the white reflects back the beaming New Orleans sun, and the faint moss green demonstrates the small bunches of living greenery that feed off the New Orleans humidity.
