Painting of Daniel Craig by artist Kent Paulette. Here, a beautifully stylized depiction of James Bond shows Bond staring outward, and slightly upward, toward the viewer. The upward gaze, along with the hint of a smile on Bond’s face, indicates that Bond knows something that the viewer doesn’t. He appears confident and poised. His left hand rests against his white dress shirt. It appears as if he could easily slip his hand inside his coat and retrieve something from the hidden breast pocket—a knife or a gadget perhaps. His suit, his bowtie, the French cuffs of his dress shirt, and the partially exposed luxury watch all display Bond as a man of importance. The stylistic approach in this painting adds other interesting elements. Bond’s skin tones are loaded with pops of color like sky blue, mint green, red, and orange. His dark coat matches the darkness of the blue background, but extra color in the coat causes it to stand out as a representational form against the background. The use of contrast makes Bond’s eyes and suit become the focal points. His piercing gaze is so fierce that it is almost unsettling. Bond is captured here in all his suave sophistication.
