Art School: If Lincoln Was A College Professor.

In honor of President's Day, our portrait model was a Lincoln impersonator, who had the day before, spent the afternoon with the other Mount Rushmore presidents at the Nixon Library.  I ran out of time towards the end and changed his fancy suit into a sweater, which made him look more like a college professor.  This was painted from a live model in a little over 2 hours.  Many thanks to my instructor, Lucas Graciano, for his help.

If Lincoln Was A College Professor (Oil on canvas board, 9x12").

And for those interested in the process....
