Black Clown Painting: The underpainting continues

“Black Clown”
Work in progress
oils on canvas, 6ft x 4ft

I finished the skin and began work on the black areas. I’ve decided not to use any actual black paint but instead a mixture of blues and browns.

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

“Clown Battle” Painting work in progress, oils on canvas

“Clown Battle”
Work in progress
oils on canvas, 10″x20″

My latest clown painting, “Clown Battle” (working title). I plan on doing several smaller/more affordable clown paintings in addition to the large portrait ones.

As of 9/23/11 the underpainting is done and some detail work has been done to the lollipop and black stripes. Enjoy the fun facts about lollipops! They’ll pop up while I’m painting candy.

One line may get cut off. It’s supposed to say, “George Smith named the stick candy after his favorite race horse Lolly Pop.”

I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to be painting outside or not. I have started a much smaller clown painting and might work on that. You’ll have to come to The Hive Gallery and find out.

Purple Clown Update: Adjusted the eyes and detailed the hair

Purple Clown Update:

I attempted to fix that wacky eye. Now that I’ve stepped away from it I see that there is still some work to be done. I also worked on the bang area, adding more details and individual hairs. Enjoy!
