Daily Deviation

Given 2009-11-04
Diego Velazquez by ~Benbe immaculately portrays one of the most influential artists to ever emerge from Spain or perhaps the Western World. Every consummately rendered detail plays a crucial role in this quiet yet powerful orchestration, with the sweet climax anchored within the reflections of those penetrating eyes. Needless to say, a closer look is imperative. ( Suggested by EternalFallacy and Featured by snowmask )

Me fascina el acierto con el que has pintado las meninas en las retinas de su autor.
