Barack Obama Portrait
Expressive Barack Obama Portrait
Enjoy a loose interpretation of President Barack Obama. It's painted with mixed media on 30H x 22W inch paper with plenty of carefree brushwork and arbitrary colors. I particularly like the light violet crayon scribbles as it adds some additional movement to the painting.
This piece was done at the end of a somewhat dull session. Things weren't going too bad but for the most part the work I had been doing was somewhat flat for what I was trying to do. But I had about thirty minutes to burn before I had to go so I used up all the paint on the palette as I painted this one in a fast & furious manner. It wasn't until I returned the following day that I actually took the time to appreciate what I had done.
