I know you Ancient Greek/Roman type guys have a thing for drapery and robes, so I thought I'd post this tutorial I can across.
And on a side note, hopefully in the next few weeks I'm going to Sydney to see a Carravaggio exhibition, a few Artemesia Gentileschi paintings are on display too :D
i would like to see that, but cannot find the actual tutorial - can you punch it in again.?
do you know if Carravaggio is showing anywhere else in Oz - like Brizzie maybe? I would love to see it.

Hi Pencil. Great tutorial...you know how us ancient greek/roman types are - I just hate it when my toga rides. ;)
How about giving us an update on the Caravaggio showing? I know he's one of your faves. btw - that site is awesome...keep posting links to the good stuff.

Wow! now I am starting to wonder if an obsession for folds in clothing is truly an Italian thing. Oh Vince, I also had trouble with my toga riding, so I watched Animal House a few times, and learned how to wear it properly.

Wow, I love Caravaggio and Gentileschi! I hope you can make the trip, it should be fantastic.

well, long time for me to be absent from the forum. it looks different?
I did make it to the Caravaggio exhibition, a few weeks ago now. It was so amazing. I was in tears the whole time I was there. His work is so powerful.
I had just flown down from Brisbane to Sydney that morning, leaving behind some of the most beautiful people in my life so I guess I was already in a bit of an emotional state, so Caravaggio just knocked me off my feet.
Then straight after the exhibition I was off to meet a friend to start our drive across Australia to Perth, in a Toyota Landcruiser that runs on used vegetable oil, just to be different eh!
hope all is well here at wetcanvas and it's great to see the classical forum going strong...and to think, there were people here who thought I hated classical art (but only Willy Burgs ;) )

Er-uh maybe it was the post about a classical forum turning into an elitist group of snobs. ;) Yeah, you knew I wasnt letting that comment slide :evil:
I am happy to read that you made it to the Caravaggio show and it sounds like there has been a lot of changes in your personal life. Have you found that your travels are exciting your inspiration? You always have a best friend in your art; hopefully it will fill any void left without all those beautiful people in your life.
Now, you trekked across Australia, saw the most amazing art show in the world and you dont have a single pic to upload?! ;)
