Jinx starts a new (blue) fishnet painting. Oils on canvas, 4″x4″

Blue Fishnet painting

This is a very short progress video of my latest fishnet painting. Blue this time! I’ve pretty much got the underpainting done. I had to stop before the colors got too muddy. The paint needs to dry before I can do anything else. 4″x4″, oils on canvas

New update on the Purple Clown Painting. Jinx works on the face and skirt.

This update is from the past 2 weeks. Last week I worked on the face. I am still reshaping things. Today I found a couple more areas to fix. This week I worked on the tulle in the skirt. It’s almost done. I still have about 1/3 left. Just over the leg and the little bit up front left.

Purple Clown Update: Shoes and hands

Sorry for the lack of updates everyone. I’m in the final detail stage of this painting and all the progress photos are starting to look very similar. So in an effort not to be repetitive I’m going to start combining painting sessions together in the videos.

Purple Clown Portrait update: Last of 2010

Happy New Year everyone!

I had decided to end 2010 by working on the purple clown’s face. The shape of it was bothering me for some time. I didn’t even like looking at it. Something had to be done.

I pretty much reworked the whole thing. The photo below is what I ended up with. There is lots more work to be done. At least I can look at it now. The face isn’t as distorted as it was and the eyes are prettier.

Stay tuned for more progress videos of the Purple Clown Portrait.

Please subscribe to my YouTube channel to stay up to date on my work.

New videos of the purple clown portrait are up. Jinx paints tattoos, suspenders, and lace!

Sorry for lagging on post new videos. I’ve been busy. I visited my parents in Wisconsin a couple of weeks ago. WAY TOO COLD! I’ve been spoiled with the California weather (except for this week). Anyway, I wasn’t able to work on things while I was there.

All the progress videos of the purple clown are on YouTube. Click the photo below and it’ll take you to my YouTube channel. ¬†There you can watch me paint the tattoos, suspenders, and lots of lace.
