Abstract Theodore Roosevelt Painting Details

This abstract style Theodore Roosevelt painting features a colorful palette and playful brushwork. As loose as it is there are still plenty of representational qualities so the viewer can easily identify the former President. The artwork was painted on an inferior work so much of the color, scribbles and overall looseness are attributed to this technique. I've grown accustomed to painting over the chaos of the previous painting, it took some getting use to but I can easily identify which elements to keep as I'm creating the new painting. That's really the key - to allow some of the underpainting to be visible while creating the new piece. This is what gives it that layered, abstract and colorful look.

Thanks for having a look and I'll see you next time.
