Pop Art Portrait Lesson - Abraham Lincoln

Pop Art Portrait Lesson - Abraham Lincoln

Our Pop Art Portrait of Abraham Lincoln was created by using black for all the dark tones and flat naturalistic colors for the light clothing and skin. The background was then divided down the middle, one half filled with stars, the other stripes. This adds a strong sense of color and pattern to the image while symbolizing the patriotism of the subject.

In our Pop Art Group Project of Abraham Lincoln, the dark and light tones of the figure were shaded with tones of grey. The alternate patterns of stars and stripes in the background were added to create a color contrast with the monochrome portrait.
