I took this photo in the "Palais des Beaux Arts" of Lille, France (I also made the drawing)
I've represented on the paper 3 of my most favorite paintings:
- "The Third of May 1808"
by Francisco Goya (the painting is much bigger in the real life)
- "The Birth of Venus"
by Sandro Botticelli (the painting is much bigger in the real life)
- "The Gleaners"
by Jean-François Millet
The big Eye in the centre of the composition is something I added because what would visual art be without the tool to see it?
In my opinion, the human eye and brain and the way we interpret art are even more important than the artworks themselves. The model is my sweet Marta
.Update: See THIS VIDEO showing some 18 Pencil Vs Camera images in progress (with a small animation and an original musical compo).See the whole "Pencil Vs Camera" album

A poem by Peter S. Quinn
Here I am or if I am
The eye of seeing all
Some of it is a scam
As it's not on the wall:
3 of paintings favorite
Is a pure fantasy play
1 left out deliberate
The Shooting of 3 May
Eye to see another eye
Of model Marta - my dear
Artists now have a try
And draw a picture of her!
