Former President Bush 43
This portrait of George W. Bush is a great example of a stylized portrait. The way his face is painted makes it this way with the use of shape through out the face. This is also a prime example of relieved symmetry in that the one side of the portrait has almost as much as the other, the only difference being that his head is tilted more to one side. Lastly, the use of line throughout the shapes on his face seem to bring us to a focal point of his eyes, in which he is looking up at someone of something.
