Ronald Reagan Portrait Details

Mixed media portrait of Ronald Reagan that features a burst of primary colors, loose brushwork and loaded with abstract qualities. The medium is heavy body acrylics, inks and crayon, and it measures 22" x 15". Probably my favorite portrait to date. Love the resemblance, palette and overall cohesiveness of the painting.

Artist Notes

I don't often use this palette but I have to say I'm fond of it. Red is such an intense color when paired with bright yellow - but it works. It's not like I haven't seen this combination before but to use it was a different animal all together. Really glad I did even though I didn't do it intentionally.
