Franklin Roosevelt Portrait Details

This Franklin Roosevelt Portrait features the former President painted in a playful palette of yellows, magentas and blues on archival paper, and measures 22" x 15". It's one of four President portraits that were created for a collector in New Orleans.

Portraits are still a new subject for me but I'm starting to find my way. It takes a little time with each new person so I tend to doodle and play with the subject until certain features start to stand out more than the others. Once I start connecting to these shapes and features I know I'm well on my way to capturing a likeness of the subject but there's still a challenge to make it loose and expressive. They're not easy but I'm embracing the challenge and look forward to seeing where they go in the future.
