Shy Clown

It has been a while since I’ve posted one of my artworks, and this one may seem a bit familiar to anyone that has watched this blog over the year.  This is a digital painting portrait where I’ve recently added some updates.  I also have the black and white version without the clown make-up and hair ribbon.

This portrait was actually a redo of a painting I did about 8 years ago.  Sometimes I enjoy going back to old pictures and ideas and completely redoing them to see if I’m able to improve them.  I made a video showing the old version in comparison to this new one, and I’ll make sure to add that to a blog post later today.

Art – Clown Portrait

If I had to pick my favorite artwork I’ve done, I would probably choose this digital painting of a young lady dressed as a clown.  There is something I connect with , but I also just like clowns.  I always have.

What is she hiding behind all of that make-up? In my artwork clowns usually represent that awkwardness that so many of us sometimes feel; those moments were we feel like we don’t belong, or we want to hide behind a mask. Or maybe we desperately want that extra attention. Sometimes it doesn’t have to mean anything at all, and I just enjoy the bright colors.
