Bring In The Clowns

As I mentioned earlier, I finished the boy clown painting even though I would have normally tossed it.

Here's the resource photo again, from wetcanvas (portraits, April challenge):

I would like to keep trying this one, so I'm keeping the reference photo on hand. Now, on to another clown.

Glad you finished it! Really turned out great.... I didn't realize it was a boy.... I painted it thinking it was a girl!!!

Love your vivid colors!!! Cool hair!!!

hmmm... Wanda, I think it could go either way, now that I think about it. Interesting. A gender dilemma. (I just went back and looked again. A toss up in my book. At this age, its not easy to determine gender. Not without clues from 'regular' clothing, hair style, and body language.) Maybe I assumed "boy" because I'm living with boys. As I said before, very interesting.

Oh... wait a minute. Maybe I assumed 'boy' because the child is not wearing a shirt.
