Who Are These Clowns?!

My sincere intention was to use another photo of a clown and produce a magnificent drawing of said clown. It ain't gonna happen. (source photo from wetcanvas.com/portrait/April Challenge) I couldn't catch a likeness, I couldn't get myself in the zone, so instead I went for a blind contour drawing. Only I peeked. A lot. I tried two times. Results below.

 

 

 


On a different note, 5 yr old Vyron was showing me a toy he had. He said he had borrowed it from his playmate Aubrey. He waited a second and then said "I've been borrowing it for 5 years."

"I've been borrowing it for five years, "....hahahahahah. That is so darn funny.

Love your paintings, a lot. I definitely think you got his likeness and I like the style you did them in.

Oh you did get the likeness C, and the looseness of the watercolor and hint of a different color...Oh I really really like these...
Wonder how many clown faces there are out there to experiment with... So send in the clowns....

Vyron....oh my goodness, that is so funny...Is there a 5 year rule, that it becomes yours.... ha ha ha.

BTW Thelma was a hoot! I couldn't even begin to share our entire conversation, but it was a blast! I want to be a Thelma if I live to be3 93!!!

Opps, typo.... 93, not 393 Only Bible Characters lived that long!!!

If you notice comments being deleted, they are "comments" trying to sell something, or get ad dollars for the commenters. When I'm fairly sure they are what I call spammers, I delete them. Foreign language be damned.

-Hmmm, I'm a photograph girl myself and the last colorful photo you posted of the clown really caught me....this one though I most def prefer your sktetch version to the photo. The photo is too washed out and the sketches have more depth. I'm having trouble deciding if I like the first or 2nd one of the sketches better though. They both have their own merits that's for certain.
