Tim's Vermeer Opens in Cincinnati March 14th
This is interesting. It is a documentary about how some theorize how Vermeer made his paintings. It opens at the Esquire on March 14th.
I find it interesting that so many agonize over how he made his paintings. Even if he used any camera obscura type of aid, it should not diminish the perception of the high quality of his work in any way.
Anyone who shoots photo reference for their illustrations knows that it is a long, difficult road between that and a successful painting.
This article about the movie is also interesting.:
I like that he compares the movie to a lone episode of Mythbusters.
