Latest news about Clown Portraits Project

Clown portraits project is advancing. At the moment I created 30 ACEO miniature clown portraits which all can be seen at my Patreon Page with work-in-progress photos. Last two months I have been posting live auctions on Ebay and 15 of Original ACEO miniature clowns bought by Ebay ACEO collectors. Also I am rewarding my "Bip the Clown" tier patron each month with two Original ACEO Clowns.

Besides the ACEOs I created a linocut print for the International event called "Print Day May 5th".  See the time-lapse video clip at my updated YouTube Channel and please don't forget to subscribe to my channel.

I finished an oil painting with a Pierrot Clown and framed it. I got inspired by 1930's Pierrot paintings which many of them take place by the sea and under the dusk or sundown scenes. This is a sad Pierrot accompanied with a little puppy by the beach where there is a ruin of an old castle. Actually this castle called Castillo de San Cristóbal is located in our island by the coast of city of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

At the moment I am working on a Harlequin Clown oil painting and sketching for an oil pastel clown portrait artwork. All the detailed work-in-progress pictures will be shared at my Patreon. If you would like to see them simply click on "Become a Patron" and choose a tier that suits your budget. Besides sharing behind the scene pics posts on Patreon, I give rewards to my patrons. 

I think this is a great way to start collecting original and affordable artworks and supporting a living artist at the same time. Just to let you know that thanks to my patrons I recently purchased a great webcam for live streaming and I will be able to share HQ quality videoclips soon as well.
