Send in the clowns
I"m working on a series of circus inspired post cards. I needed a piece to work o n at the Senior Center where a group paints together. So I decided to paint a clown face. I layered on masking tape coated it with a light layer of liquid gesso, and then drew on the face with charcoal. A little colored pencil and some liquid acrylic paint (titan buff) and I had a face. Here he is. I've made some minor changes since this was taken, but essentially this is it.
