JFK painted and Wall construction complete

Here's the finished JFK/ West side segment of the Berlin Wall. Not a great likeness of the man but I'm pretty happy with it. It's more or less graffiti art anyway.

Yesturday, I cut about 3/4 of an inch off the base. After some consideration and suggestion, the tighter the subject behind the Wall would be the more intimate the scene. I also added a 54mm scale chart to show the aproximate height of the Wall.

Up next is painting the figure and tying the scene together.

Jason, Looks really good. I bet you had fun painting JFK's portrait. ~Gary

Yeah, it was fun, but a proposed change to it's look has come to surface. More later.

Original and interesting concept. And the likeness of JFK is in my opinion spot on. As you said, it's meant to be graffiti art. The dripped white pain on the underside of the portrait is a little detail that makes for a nice finishing touch. Also the representation of the concrete wall looks very convincing to me.
I'm quite curious about the final result.

Thanks Johan! Well, there is going to be some changes to the portrait...I just need to find the courage to do the "change".

Good to hear from you.

Stay tuned.
