I never tire of painting actor Boris Karloff. Easily my favorite actor, or performer. His many film roles always thrill me, and his various audio performances whether they be on radio or record are just as wonderful. He appeared many times in radio on shows like Inner Sanctum, Duffy's Tavern, or Guest Star just to name a few. He showed his intellect on Information, Please and his wit on the Fred Allen show.
This was done on stretched canvas, 16"x20" in oils. I really prefer doing landscapes on stretched canvas instead of portraits as I feel I have more control painting on canvas boards. This was a tough likeness of him to capture, and I am pleased with the final results.
