Putin

Here is the Russian president Putin painted as practice. A little too red in my opinion. One thing I hate is canvas. It always drives me crazy because I cant control the paint like I would like with all that cloth texture. If it is really a tight weave I can handle it but I always prefer masonite board with a touch of texture from the gesso. I thought it was about time to post an oil painting.

Then a couple drawings the one is not Karr, the Ramsey nutcase. It's actually the guy from "Good night and good luck"(a really lame movie with a lame premise.
