You have to go a long way to find an artist more bold, in content and concept, than Norman Lindsay. Inspired by reading a book on Crete, Lindsay created this painting in 1940, oddly enough titled Crete, using friends and family as models.
As always, the preliminary drawings are interesting to study.

My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, as I don't limit myself in the process of how an image is made. Images are my life.
