Here is a quick two step process of Day 9 of October: Clown! It explains what I do when a piece is nearly finished.
1. Below you can see the nearly finished painting. But it still needed some more contrast and vibrance to make it ‘pop’ more.
2. So I added two textures, set them to Lighten and erased some bits here and there. I also altered the contrasts, made her lollipop bigger and more blurred and added some details!
