R. Armitage as Bard, 2008.

R Armitage as Guy as Bard. Anne-Louise P. 2008-16 Here’s a small painting I did back in 2008, thinking that it would be great if Richard Armitage got a part in The Hobbit.

Along with many other fans, I thought he’d make a wonderful Bard.

As we now know, Richard did get a part in the movie – a much bigger part, of course – but I haven’t painted him as Thorin; not yet anyway!

Anyway, I hope that some of you – especially RA fans who didn’t already see it six years ago – might be interested in having a look.

With apologies to Luke Evans!

Acrylic paints on 13 x 18cm watercolour paper, 2008. Finished painting, above, scanned into PS CS5 to highlight the windows and roof trusses of the buildings, and add contrast.
