Igor V. Babailov is a rather famous portrait painter. He is commissioned for formal oil portraits by presidents and by popes. Me? I just started oil painting. I'm basically "feeling my way through the dark."
I thought I'd compare an oil painting of Igor's with one of mine, as a learning exercise. I took his oil of George Bush and my oil of James (a welder by trader), and placed them side by side. Interesting. I need to improve.
