Would You Like Cheese With That?
HERE'S ONE THAT'LL MAKE make you groan. Do you think Botticelli envisioned this future? I saw the original Birth of Venus in Italy along with a whole body of Botticelli paintings and I have to say I think he was an illustrator first, painter second. The white caps on the waters in the background of Venus are so representational. In a time where painters were rock stars and all working for the religious state it is interesting to see what has distilled the test of time.
Apologies for the lack of Blog specific creations. I must say the schedule is too full for that extra 1/2 hour a day these days.
HERE'S A DETAIL FROM THE ORIGINAL.
