George Washington

George Washington

A friend gave me a box of acrylic chalks and showed me how to rapidly paint a face. A couple of months ago I was wondering if I could do it like him and made a first try. Luckily the first try was not too bad so that I had the courage to continue with probing. The second painting was already impressive for my personal judgement.

Immediately I had an idea for a new project. Painting portraits is very fascinating if you see a painter doing it very fast and in a profession that you immediately can identify the person which has been portrayed.

John Adams

My idea is to paint the faces of all 44 American presidents, starting with the first and coming back to the current one, Obama. There is a list on Wikipedia with all US presidents and on Google you can find pictures of about everyone of them. Here are the first and the second one, Washington and Adams.
