"Bogart" is an original, signed acrylic painting on canvas by Citrus County Florida artist Michael Arnold.

This painting is the first in a series of Hollywood Legends paintings I plan to work on. This is a painting of Humphrey Bogart as Philip Marlowe in the film Howard Hawks film The Big Sleep. It is painted in acrylics using three colors - cobalt blue, burnt sienna and yellow ochre. I also used a little titanium white. I built the canvas 3-foot by 4-foot and stretched gessoed canvas over it. I prepped the canvas using gesso tinted with burnt sienna. I had a lot of fun and the painting went pretty quick. I used loose strokes, which gives the painting a lot of texture when viewed closeup. Once you step back 10-15 feet, the painting takes on a whole new look.
