Masters Painting Reduced

For those of you who follow my blog regularly you know that in my design class we have been working on study of a Masters painting.  In my case it is the Milkmaid by Vermeer.  This week I did a 5×5 painting:

painted, scanned, and converted to jpeg

The idea behind this assignment is to reduce it to its shapes.  So, if you are familiar with the original painting, you can see that a lot of detail has been lost.  if you are interested in seeing the line drawing and a copy of the original, I linked in a previous blog here.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry

Geometry, that was my favorite math in high school, and it is also the topic of this week’s photo challenge at WordPress.  I don’t do a lot of architecture photography but this shot is a picture of a stairwell in the St. Louis Art Museum that caught my eye.  I think it fits for this week’s challenge as well:

ISO 1600 4mm 0ev f/2.7 1/40

I took this photo with my point and shoot.  I tried the shot on a few different settings, but my favorite was this one using the blue tone in the black and white setting.
