Susanne du Toit [South African artist] works in a number of different mediums, but specialises in portraits which she paints in her studio in Berkshire. She describes her art as "an intensely individual experience" and says the meaning is personal, before it is public.

Here are her top 10 tips for being an artist.

Some great face painting here... not quick jobs but FUN
Children love face-painting, but it’s mostly an occasional treat for birthdays or for Halloween. However, the children of New Zealand-based body painting artist Christy Lewis, aka Daisy, are lucky enough to be turned into fantastic characters on a regular basis.

Public Library.   #nyc   #publiclibrary   #infraredflash   #landmarks   #newyorkcityphotography  

This was shot at the end of a night of wandering around the city.  Dawn had not yet appeared.  I was using a #Weegee  sort of rig, but modified for the digital world.  The flash had been modified to only emit infrared light.

The camera had been modified to only be sensitive to the same wavelength.  In short, you could use infrared in relative darkness.

Of course the subject and idea is way different from any #Weegee  work, and he was using a 4x5 camera, and flash bulbs coated to only emit light in the infrared spectrum.

The fascinating thing (of course) is that real infrared (as opposed to post processing filters) captures what you can't see with your own eyes.  In that way, it's no different than a telephoto lens which also shows things you could never see with your unaided eyes.

the late Bob Ross painted 381 times on +PBS didn’t paint oaks or spruces, he painted “happy trees.” He favored “almighty mountains” to peaks. Once he’d painted one tree, he didn’t paint another — he painted a “friend.”
Bob Ross was a consummate teacher. He guided fans along as he painted "happy trees," "almighty mountains" and "fluffy clouds" over the course of his 11-year television career on his PBS show, “The ...
