Power Portraits, the next seven

The deeper I get into the Power Portraits 1965-1989 project, the greater the sense of turmoil. This week, I’ve portrayed “junk bond king” Michael Milken, Civil Rights activists and feminists Coretta Scott King and Betty Friedan, u-turning Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, Vatican 2 architect Pope Paul VI, and cold warriors Leonid Brezhnev and Richard Nixon.

I’ve also thrown some new techniques into the mix, including angle brushes and ink washes.
