    "Animal Art by Bianca Leusink"

    Hi everyone, I took this shot at a local hometown gallery.
    (see Welkom bij Bianca's Website!) I got permission for a shooting and posting.
    She calls her artwork "Crazy Animals".
    If you like I will post more images, it's up to you!

    Cosinaphile - I love your paintings - the first one reminds me so much of Cezanne's still lives :thumbup:

    You have such a talent there - do you still paint? Please show us some more of your work!

    Those paintings are so incredibly expressive - I wish I had that artistic talent. :smile: In fact the reason I turned to photography myself is that I realised that I could never express what was in my head using my hands alone... it takes a piece of machinery in my case to express my feelings, and I have so much admiration for those who can do it with their hands and mind alone :smile:

    caroline what you dont know about your own talent could fill a book or at least a sketch pad , every sucessful drawing or painting starts with a single stroke ,just as every good photo starts with an idea, if you just hold your camera in the direction of something vaguely interesting at fire away , well youll get what you get...but if you have ab idea in mind and try to be aware of the dynamics of what is occuring in "your rectangle" and choose what is and exclude what in not

    the bridge is yours to cross caroline , like the master picasso who is worthy of study for image makers every bit as much as bresson, manray winogrand,
    anyone can draw.... it has nothing to do with "artistic talent"
    it has everything to do with total submission to the need of the image and a totalsubmission of all your notions of what making art is ,

    now get thee a sketch pad and go forth
    let your photography and color and line art reinforce each other, your talent is there
    cheers
