And then, what's the difference between this sculpture, by Bernini, and this toy designed by Lego?
And this circle [photo from National Geographic], made by this Puffer fish.
Thanks everyone for the input and suggestions. Let's see, so far I've put together some images for students to compare. I want to see if they can explain, for example the differences between:
I'll be teaching a lesson on this in a week or so and I'm just wondering if anyone knows any interesting examples, off the top of your head. Quick example, I once saw an interview with an artist who...
I went to a life drawing class - open drawing, at Castle Hill in Truro. These are the last of the night, 15 minute poses.
sketches and an update on the WIP.
So, here's one other beach scene from Zadar, and an acrylic WIP I'm in the middle of.
A couple new sketches, from my vacation in Croatia. Zadar is a pretty town.
Here's a sketch of my son and his school friends. It was a gift for his teacher.

He was my favorite actor... Damn...
"Thanks for all the input guys, now back to looking for photos on the net..."
