The Birth of Venus - sketch

graphite on paper; ≈8x10”; This is a pencil sketch for my painting "Birth of Venus", which is a humorous modern tribute to Botticelli's famous work. It's part of my continuing exploration of our immersion in the world of screens. This Venus is chubby and turning into an i-device herself. An angelic putto gracefully flies in to offer a touch to the screen as apps cascade from the sky. The sketch is unframed.
