today's angry woman

Today's angry woman is the actor Rose McGowan, who was featured in the current issue of Bust Magazine, in a kickass interview where she angrily declares her intention to dismantle the patriarchy.  Awesome!

Today's work was mostly composition, and pictured here is one of the geometric grids on a picture of this amazing Botticelli painting.  It's so interesting to see how the figures are actually positioned along a pyramid that frames the central figure of Venus.  I am also fascinated by the way my understanding of the painting evolves with both doing a thumbnail drawing and with evaluating each of the lines in the grid and how it relates to different elements in the painting.  I don't think a piece of art can be fully absorbed in the handful of seconds that most people spend looking at it in a museum.
