Jeremy Sutton pays tribute to creative luminaries in San Francisco and beyond. We stopped by his studio and watched him create a portrait of San Francisco musician, Danny Armstrong. He also discussed his connection to Renaissance painters, and showed us how emulating old masters’ works helps him get ideas for his own contemporary portraits. Jeremy works with a variety of mediums, both digital and traditional. This video addresses connections between historical and contemporary paintings.
