So, one day I got to thinking that Leonardo, being 'only human', must have obsessed enough with the dream of flight, that he actually would have dreamed about it. I did a preliminary drawing with the intent of painting it, but as with most of my personal work, it had to be set aside for paying commissions. Below is just one small section of that really large panorama drawing that includes a number of surrealistic details outside of this zoomed frame.
I have a dream of one day painting this, but it'll probably have to be a triptych, because the actual layout is so wide.

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, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
