Completed Obama

It's interesting to compare the version of this after one day, with the finished version after another two days, and how the personality and likeness can be developed and tightened in the rendering. It's what I love most about painting.

Dude i think this Obama'Drama would gain more depth on a dark background. Nonetheless i subcribe its a great painting, till when will your exhibition will be hanging?

Manoj Sinha said...

I agree with Nelson. Nice job but, I like the Tomo's caricature then Obama's. Tomo's caricature is great.

Paul, as i said on the NCN, this is an amazing, One of the best Obamas I've ever seen. The fact that you did this live makes it that much cooler. Those eyes are so great.

This is awesome--I love the painterly background, I think it would be a shame to darken it. Great job!
