For some of Laura’s most delicate paintings such as this one, she employed the medium of watercolour, something she had started with great effect in the early 1900’s.

Throughout 1929 and 1930 Knight went on a tour of British towns with the combined Bertram Mills and Great Carmo's Circus. Painting within a working circus forced Knight to paint at great speed, as the performers rarely had much time to pose.
