Clown finale

Okay, perhaps I've put the clown up too much… BUT, I have the finished composition and I thought I would also show the intermediary steps. The last two steps were to decide on the positioning of the background space and "tipping" the paint brush with red paint. The distinctions are subtle, but important methinks. I decided to go with the more uniform and dark background rather than showing another red highlight (I thought that was distracting).


  1. A wee bit sinister, but I've always thought that of clowns. Great stuff Steven.

  2. Thanks Jo! The piece certainly has been eliciting lots of responses (some folks love it, others are repulsed… that's okay for me as an artist).
