Lincoln Profile- Oils- Finished

I'm enjoying these recent portraits- getting used to and making adjustments in the working process.
There are some details to adjust in this one yet, and I will update the image when done. 9x12 Oil on primed panel

Good work as always Ken. I also like the contrast with the background.

Thank you Olaf! I agree! I've done several and have learned much from those who know him better- it's led to a much greater appreciation for his leadership and extraordinary accomplishments.

Re: Lincoln Profile- Oils

Some small refinements and adjustments made- finished but for signature.
