Today's Inspiration- Van Eyck

by - Saturday, May 03, 2014

Van Eyck paintings have to be the ultimate examples of why it is so much better to see art works in real life, rather than in reproductions. A camera cannot even reproduce the level of incredible detail even in pieces that are actually pretty small in size. They stick with you. Northern Renaissance painting is where it is at.  This is also inspired by the super courageous Paige, who is moving to the Netherlands for a year, and who should go see the Ghent Altarpiece so that I can spend the rest of forever deeply jealous of her. This is his Saint Barbara image. Just heaven.
