Teddy Roosevelt

This week's Daily Paintworks challenge was to paint something from a room in the White House. Naturally I couldn't stop myself from attempting to copy Sargent's iconic portrait of Theodore Roosevelt. Since I painted it in "one go", I couldn't slow down and finish it off as I'd like to. But on the other hand, I like the loose, slap-dash quality of my painting sketch. Perhaps once again, it's time to put down the brushes and leave well enough alone.


  1. Really nice,Ann. I should have known you would do a portrait! I hope to get around to a room-scape. never have done one before!

  2. I like the loose slap-dash quality also. Your brush strokes are loose but precise. Love it!

  3. Awesome! Good choice! Yep, you stopped at the right time. Looks great.
