Pencil Vs Camera - 56 by BenHeine Pencil Vs Camera - 56 by BenHeine

____________________________________________________

Street Art in Florence, Italy. I recently took this picture and also made
the drawing. Originally, the mother and child were holding grapes.
I had several ideas to replace the grapes with something more funny.
I chose a camera because I think it's nice to connect modern painting,
photography and traditional drawing...

View the the full Pencil Vs Camera album

If you wish, you can also view a detail and another pic in the same
location HERE (the painting on the floor is by Madonnari)

The above photo has been shot with the Samsung NX10,
provided by Samsung Electronics. Co., Ltd.

>>> Review from THE DAILY MAIL for this picture: "Illusions:
Art, imitating life, imitating art... the artist claims his technique is a "new
visual invention"
(Kerry McQueeney, The Daily Mail, Sept. 2011)

Update: See THIS VIDEO showing some 18 Pencil Vs Camera
images in progress (with a small animation and original music)

It certainly is very interesting to see three different versions of the same work of art in the same piece. Comparing them right there really shows the contrasts among them. The part I like the best is how the pencil drawing pops out at the eye with the same level of depth as the street art. The camera that you inserted is also a great twist to the work.

You mention this was shot in Florence, Italy, a popular tourist destination, so it can be said that you captured that reflection of the city. I cannot really find anything to dislike about this work: the focus shows the great detail and the perspective feels natural.

Overall, this is an excellent work of art. Great job. Be proud.

Her hands look a bit manish. However, the pic as a whole is really well done.

Also incredibly meta. Because it's Pencil vs Camera, and there's a camera, and... not quite into infinite recursions yet but you're getting darn close.

Loving the Escher feel.

If you found this on the street leading from Ponte Vecchio to the Duomo, there is a strong chance you and I crossed paths sometime in the past few weeks! I definitely saw this one during my stay in Florence, and I love what you've done with it :)
