Today's picture comes complete with an interesting story. Principal cello with Orchestra London, Christine Newland, used her Mac's built-in camera and iPhoto to create a picture of herself behind a Venetian-style green feather mask. She then took the image, quickly created a dry pastel sketch on black paper and, using her computer camera again, photographed her art.
Recently Newland has been rekindling her interest in the visual arts by doing quick sketches and e-mailing copies to her friends. If you're interested in having a work of art by Christine Newland, she does portraits of loved ones or pets for clients.
