The 8th Doctor - Thais by Timedancer The 8th Doctor - Thais by Timedancer
Painted in 1999, this portrait was inspired by the romantic side of the Eighth Doctor.

I imagined he could well be an accomplished violinist, hense the title of the painting. He is playing the beautiful Meditation from the opera Thais, by Massenet.

My painting was completed before Kate Orman wrote her wonderful EDA "The Year of Intelligent Tigers". We had a giggle at all the queries about which came first, my painting, or her story...

The original painting is quite small ; A5 Acrylic on paper.

2013 UPDATE: I have prints of this piece available here in my ETSY shop: [link]?

Brilliant, if the 8th doctor ever comes back he needs to play a violin.

I would almost kill to be able to hang a copy in my room because it is fucking art! You don't even have to look at it as Doctor Who, it can just be a Victorian era guy playing a violin.

That is TOTALLY how I imagined Eight spending his free time. He looks like he constantly lives in the victorian times! :iconiloveitplz: That's probably why he's my favorite Doctor!
