billclinton.jpgThis painting was done by artist Chuck Close of former president bill cliton. I was a huge 7ft by 9ft oil paint done on canvas. I chose this painting because I think he really captured Clintion in this picture.From far away the painting will appear to be a little distorted or pixelated but if you squint your eyes the image will appear clearer. The technique he used was by working on tiny circular sections at a time to make a whole painting. To picture a portrait dont like this must have been a difficult takk but when trippled in size is truely talented. This painter shows a great deal of abstract marks and complexity. In this painting we can see his bright big smile, blue eyes and his salt and peper hair making Clintion look strong and appealing to the veiwer.
