His Majesty King Bhumipol Adulyadej of Thailand


My latest painting. I may tweak the background a tiny bit more, but it's basically complete. It's amazing how some of these youngsters just creep into my consciousness and the painting comes out so easily. Other times it can be quite an effort of endurance. This one just took a couple days... Such an enchanting expression in his eyes - quite hard to read.

You know, I've only ever visited your Vegan Eats & Treats blog. I have been missing out on your great talent. That is photo-realistically good!And what a cool subject to choose {I guess that pun was not intended...b/c he is certainly not a mere "subject"]

Hi UV!
Nice to see that you are back. Yes, I'm also a painter... :) This is part of a big series of portraits that I'm working on - current (or recent) world leaders painted from their childhood photographs. You can see the rest at : www.yogawithamey.com/worldleaders

:) !
