Black and White Merkel

Only in America, with all our gadgets and stuff, could a boy like me sit down at his computer with this ...

And end up with this ...


This is just a computer study, but it's what I'll use when I draw slash paint B&WMerkel.

One thing I like about the bottom one is that it has the same imperious down-the-nose gaze that my favorite Bernanke painting has.  Can't put my finger on it right now, but it does.

The thing I like less about it is that it doesn't look exactly like the woman.  Although that, as dozens of paintings stand in mute agreement, is not unusual for me.

the top of the paintings, it doesn't have to look like them"

I also think her shoulders are a bit too far up her neck.  Like she's shrugging.  So we'll fix that.

And then we'll see.
