New toys

I just got one of these! A sort of belated Christmas present to myself:




Its to help me with some new painting projects. Its actually a pretty niffty projector but of course you can only use it in the dark. Intrestingly enough projectors have been used as a painting aid since the renaissance, the camera obscura dating back to the 1500s. Most artists use the projector to reproduce their art onto a grander scale, or to help with finer details such as faces.

My only problem now will be what to paint! So I think I will be spending the rest of the afternoon trawling the net looking for suitable projects and Inspiration!
