Mr. Lincoln - SOLD

I painted this for this weeks Daily Paintworks Challenge. The challenge was to paint Abraham Lincoln and there were a few variations on the theme. I chose the "full colour challenge", being you translate a black and white photo to full colour. This was fun. I was doing portraits of men in January but tapered off. I guess I could also call this one Men: 5
6" x 6" / oil on panel / $75
