Large Canvas Abraham Lincoln Painting

This large Abraham Lincoln painting is created with mixed media on canvas and measures 40" x 30" The medium is heavy body acrylics and inks. It's loaded with expressive brushwork and a colorful palette of greens, yellows, rich blues and pops of orange and red.

I don't often go big but had the urge to do so. I used a reject cityscape as a base for the portrait which is what I do often when painting on paper as well. The painting was built up in layers over a few weeks. The last few are always the most difficult since they're really what pop the subject. I tend to let a painting rest for weeks when it's at that 'almost finished' but not quite stage. Eventually I get the courage and solution to what the painting needs and 'go for it',

Hope you enjoyed the portrait. Thanks for stopping by.
