Title: Odi Profanum Vulgus

Medium: Oil on canvas

Size: 4 feet high X 3 feet wide

The technique used here involved the initial manipulation of a digital photographic image described in some detail here. After I achieved the desired, I proceeded to work on the canvas using oils (mostly primary colors) poured onto the brush directly from the tube (using the digitally transformed image as a guide). Very little mixing. Any mixing whatsoever was on the canvas directly. Finished the background by using a drip of cadmium red deep with linseed to improve flowing.  

The image used was that of George Walker Bush.
