Family: 👉 @tesori_italiani | @archaeology_treasures 🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹 Vermeer's 'The glass of wine' depicts a woman seated at a table drinking a glass of wine, while an elegantly dressed young man is watching her. Her face is almost hidden by the nearly empty glass. She is elegantly clothed wearing a red satin tabbaard with its dazzling ornate gold brocade suggesting that she has dressed to please her guest. A debonair looking man stands at her side, keeping a respectful distance from her. He looks straight at her with his hand, enclosed by a ruffled cuff, on a porcelain pitcher and seems to be waiting to fill her glass. His drab coloured clothing is in contrast to the woman’s attire and aids the visual divide between the two characters in the painting. A number of song books lie on the table which is covered by a heavy ornamental cloth. On the chair there is a blue cushion on which sits a cittern, a stringed instrument dating from the Renaissance. This is an instrument that often occurs in Vermeer’s pictures and symbolises both harmony and frivolity.
His works set the tone for representations of the upper bourgeoisie, a social level more refined than that depicted by his contemporaries. This type of setting required finer and smoother pictorial rendition than, for instance, the Milkmaid.
Consequently, Vermeer adapted his brushwork to the new needs. 🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹 ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀🏛 Share our Wonderful Heritage 🏛
So many screens! The downside to illustrating digitally. I love the control of being able to hit “undo” and having limitless colours in my arsenal, but sometimes I feel like there can be a disconnect with (solely) doing things digitally.⠀
I like the idea of mixing things up with some good old fashion paints, pens and paper. Being able to step away from the screen(s) and take that time out for myself and paint. ⠀
I find it hard to chill out (it’s either work work work or procrastinate and feel guilty about not working), so it will be nice to take myself away from the digital and connect back with the traditional, even though I am very much out of practice. ⠀
If you’ve got a GT gouache paint brand let me know!⠀

"Most mornings when I wake up, I do a quick check up on myself. I think of how my body, mind and spirit are feeling. I try to focus on my purpose and to be grateful that I’m in a situation where I can even do that. I measure my goals against the understanding that I’m a vessel of music and messages, so the stuff I’m putting out there is bigger than me. I try to be humble and realise I have to take care of myself and I have to take care of my loved ones. I am not here to be destructive, I’m here to be human." Sevdaliza/" Большую часть утра, когда я просыпаюсь, я быстро проверяю себя. Я думаю о том, что чувствуют мое тело, разум и дух. Я стараюсь сосредоточиться на своей цели и быть благодарной за то, что нахожусь в ситуации, когда я могу это сделать. Я сравниваю свои цели с пониманием того, что я - сосуд музыки и сообщений, поэтому материал, который я выкладываю, больше меня. Я стараюсь быть смиренной и осознаю, что должна заботиться о себе и заботиться о своих близких. Я здесь не для того, чтобы быть разрушительной, я здесь, чтобы быть человеком."Sevdaliza #sevdaliza#bestartists#beautifulpeople#music#singer#artists#art#performance#dance#dancers#photography#colors#world#motivation#moments#worldtour#sevdalizamusic#motivation#blackheaded#inspiration#soul#truecolors#sevdaalizadology
The Raimi movies really have a classic early Spider-Man comic vibe to them. I wish Sam Raimi got to make Spider-Man 3 his way, it would’ve kept all the good elements of Spider-Man 3 and added a lot more. The Amazing Spider-Man movies had a lot going for them as well but once again studio interference... I still believe Sony handles Spidey well, they gave us Spider-Man 1 and 2, Spider-Verse, and Spectacular Spider-Man. The TV rights especially were better off with Sony because now we have Marvel’s Spider-Man lol.
