What Does Artist Laurence M. White Paint?
Whether painting iconic celebrities such as Whitney Houston, Adele, Oprah Winfrey, The Queen of England, and more, each portrait strikes a remarkable likeness of each subject and evokes great emotion. Amazing does not even do his work justice. Having captured the characteristics of each subject, he’s managed to capture their soul. Through eyes, poses, and mannerisms painted on canvas, almost as if it was a still photograph, Mr. White gives us the gift of spending an intimate moment with some of the greatest icons of our time.
When asked how on earth he manages to do such exceptional work. Mr. White answered, “I just throw a little paint here and there and voilà.” If you ask me, the mark of a true artist–born with talent.

What artist Laurence M. White does before each painting.
The time and details put into each artistic project starts with a blank canvas painted with 6-8 coats of white paint. Yes, a time-consuming task overlooked by most art enthusiasts. Hard work has already begun before putting the first line of each drawing down on canvas. And for writers and artists who have spent hours pouring their hearts into each creative project, the exciting day finally comes when it is time to launch.
