Lucian Freud (2)
After painting a first portrait of Lucian Freud just a few days after he died (see my previous post with regard to Lucian Freud), I set out to do a second one, this time experimenting with quick broad and loose brushstrokes in combination with vivid colours. Some last-minute adjustments to the mouth and chin rather messed up the likeness it had before. I decided not to try to readjust with the risk of losing more of its previous spontaneity and just leave it as it is. Based on a photo I came across on the internet. Acrylic on canvas (30 x 40 cm).
