Masks – Sketch

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.

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.
