the little clown


I spent yesterday afternoon at a great antique store not far from my house. It is filled with tons of things to buy (and draw.) While I was on the lookout for some interesting containers for my art supplies, I couldn't help but stop and sketch this little clown. For some reason she just made me happy.

You sketched it on the spot? My, i love how you've been using color -- on this one and also on Pokey-as-Punxsutawney Phil!!!

I'm amazed, you just sketched right there?! Love the looseness and the way you've used colour here.

Love the colour and the lines, so loose and expressive. Beautiful.
