SAME BODY, DIFFERENT EYES

vickies.jpg This kind of thing is really interesting (to me). Two other members of my figure drawing group, Mark and Bernard, painted their version of Vikki (scroll down to see mine.) Theirs are both more painterly (maybe because they were actually using paint...d'ya think?) Presumably, our optic nerves sent roughly the same data to our brains, but between there and the canvas, very different things happened. And if you add Mike's interpretation (which I depicted in the group below, and relatively accurately, believe it or not), then you have to admit the possibility that things can go absolutely haywire. You can see higher=res versions of the above two at: groups.msn.com/HRArtist-ModelConnection
