I recently found a very nifty book with photos of Ronald Reagan during his presidency. It is called Images of Greatness: An Intimate Look at the Presidency of Ronald Reagan. Such nifty pictures. I have chosen a few for portraits. One for a figure drawing. I will try to get to those over the next few months. This one has the following caption: “The president listens intently during a cabinet meeting. He sometimes wore reading glasses in the Cabinet Room and Oval Office.” This is charcoal on 12×16 light brown pastel paper.
I’ve often said there’s nothing better for the inside of a man than the outside of a horse. — Ronald Reagan
