Like the colors. And ofcourse, thier is nothing that will compare with oils.
Perfection is what drives an artist.
The inability to achieve perfection is what creates a work of art.

Nice painting! As for my opinion the painting depicts something dramatic it is full of emotion this is really what a work of art is! Great work!

I am really liking the fluid motion that the swirls have going on.... I think this will be really intriguing...

I liked the first rendition much better. The emphasis in more saturated colors helped to create balance and the complementary colors helped push the eye around the center, drawing the viewer to the focal point.

The problem with darkening the background is that it makes the whole piece sit on the same plane. You've lost subliminal perspective.

I'd brighten the edges, radially becoming darker approaching the figure and then add highlights to the figure.

Hope that helps.

I really like all the versions. I like the dark one because the clown (?) seems to be more eerie, but the fluid colors in your newest rendition look as if he/she is swirling downwards and the movement is really lovely.

Nice! The latest one is the best! You nailed the swirl.
Do you have any more plans for additions?
What percent complete do think this is 90-95%?

well its not finished yet, but im closer now, i would say like its at a 90%. Since the last picture i added another layer of paint, using linseed oil as a medium.

i dont know if must leave the clown like that or add another layer of oil to it, like i did with the water.

Wow! Thats the most dynamic yet! The contrast is great!

One question though, what is that "cord" coming from the leg of the clown?
