Project Description

Thomas Jefferson Kitts

Thomas is inspired by how light plays across his subject and has devoted his life to capturing it in oil. He prefers to work from life for its honesty and immediacy, incorporating many alla prima techniques developed by master artists such as Sargent, Sorolla, and Zorn.
