Botticelli is the next artist in Studying under the Masters. I love his paintings-who could not-all those beautiful faces. The first page in my art journal is a drawing with colored pencils of him.
In the lower corner are some buttons of Venus: printed on silk. I've had these buttons forever and decided this was the place they should go. Next is the second page in my journal. I've interspersed my little paintings with printouts of Botticelli paintings. I tried several times to do a side facing portrait and it is so hard--so I just let Botticelli speak for himself on that one!!
And finally I reworked an older painting to give her a more Botticelli look-variation on one of the goddess of spring in the Primavera painting.
And then on a completely different subject, I have several new little watercolor and ink sketches of birds.
