Clown - deep green

This underpainting kind of scares me.
My feelings about clowns are kind of a mixed bag...
I am amused, terrified, intrigued, and horrified by them
all at the same time.
When I woke up this morning I thought to myself, "I'm going to paint a clown face today." Almost immediately after, I thought, "No I'm not." The conversation in my head went back and forth like that for quite some time... But, ultimately fascination won out over fear.
I am very thankful that I am in the habit of painting eyes last (because that is when I think a painting truly comes alive)... And in this case, I was definitely ready to be finished after I painted the eyes!
