Venus emerging

Venus emerging is my latest work and is indicative of the direction I want to move in this year.  It is a photo collage featuring fellow artist, the very talented Adam Anderson, who kindly posed for me.  Also featuring are Alex and Ambre whom I wrote about in my previous post.  I am very grateful to these wonderful people who have allowed me to take numerous photographs and develop an album of wonderful resources.

Botticelli's Birth of Venus is one of my favourite works of art and I have used it often to create interpretations that teach me something about the structure of  such a powerful  work.  As a self taught artist, this methodology  has been invaluable.

'Venus emerging' is a photo collage manipulated in Photoshop Elements.
