Here’s a drawing I’ve been working on. I’ve always loved drawing clowns and have been for several years now. I think my clowns tend to look more like the Pierrot type of clown. Anyway, I’ll post more about all that later. For now I thought I’d share this sketch. It will more than likely be a base sketch for a digital painting, but as of now I really like the drawing too.
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.
