Years ago I was commissioned to make a painting of Thomas touching the side of Jesus after the Resurrection. I began this drawing then but ended up doing a much simpler painting for the commission. I am in the process of preparing a large panel (for the second time) in order to paint this picture. In this post is the drawing and original painting. Following posts will explore the large panel construction and preparation and the new easel I have had to build to accommodate it.
The original painting.
