Fantastic work Thomas! Instant fav!
thank you Istvan :)
Beautiful work as ever Thomas.So elegantly finished…for me it brings many thoughts of pugilist fascination by some of the men in my life.He appears so sullen and powerful, but alone.
Strong, powerful and ready….. Love it!!!!
thank you soo much :)
Excellent work. Kind of reminds me of Assassins Creed :)
Wondrrful work – it brings to mind a very powerful man, in all walks of life, but also a deep thinker and perhaps a philosopher
thank you for looking and taking the time to write , it is ,soooo appreciated
It’s sensual without being sexy. I love the man of such strength wrapped in a shroud of white, that bellow around almost like a cocoon almost ready to emerge. The is such strength in the figure wrapped within. The arms are over-sized and seem to emphasize the strength of man. I think what’s truly interesting is the chaos of the forest that looks like it is on fire and how it is replicated on his flesh, almost as if he is emerging or moving toward this possible confusion. Very beautiful work Tom. excellent tones and use of color
really wonderful observations and your admiration ,, well i am truely thankful . Thank you so much.T
awesome tom.. Im always excited to see new work by you :)
The bow and its location seems significant for me. The hem of the robe/sheet seems to draw the eyes downward towards it. The robes are loose and flowing but it seems like the bow has been carefully tied and put in place.
The figure seems to be deep in contemplation but I get the impression he is not fully at ease… like something is troubling him. Not sure if it’s the vascular forearms or the hands on the armchair but it’s just a feeling I get from it. I get a sense of anonymity from the face which is turned away and partially hidden. I’m thinking whatever is troubling him may have to do with why his face is obscured. Perhaps it is why the bow has been carefully placed in its position?
Definitely has sense of strength to it. Internal in the contemplation & physical as well.
I appreciate your kind words and the time it took to write them , you are a gentle man :) take it as word for word not the norm’
Excellent Tom.. love the folds and the draping of the garment!!
