Abstract Thomas Jefferson Portrait
Enjoy An Abstract Thomas Jefferson Portrait
Original abstract representational portrait of President Thomas Jefferson. I painted this one several months ago but just getting it posted on the website.
The portrait was created with a somewhat minimalistic style - no background & done in one quick swoop. I don't often paint in this manner but every once in a while I get a little frisky and can't help myself. Many of these 'frisky' paintings end up in the recycle pile which is why I tend to paint in layers.
It was created with crayons and heavy body acrylics on 140 lb. watercolor paper. Measures 30" x 22". My favorite part of the painting is the bold brushwork. It just seems to slash back-and-forth but somehow landed it the right place.
