True Thomas the Storyteller

True Thomas the Storyteller 20x16 Oil/Linen

This was a fun one for me. I hired this gentleman Robert Seutter who plays the persona of "True Thomas de Rhymour, a 13th Century Scottish poet and prophet." He came and sat for me for 4 hours and while I painted away he told me tales of Celtic folklore and sang celtic songs. It was a fantastic experience! He had never sat for anyone before and he did a marvelous job.

This was one of those paintings that has a wonderful memory for me.
Thanks, True!


P.S. This painting is on display at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art

Beautiful Tony!

I love the way you complemented the cool pinks of the skin with the olive tones in the hair.
