Funny how: looking at that picture of the underpainting on the silver screen shows up how out of proportion it is. Oh well, another layer has gone on it today- the body shape should be better; but you’ll have to wait for a photo.
Assassin’s Creed: has no "difficulty setting". It appears to be adaptive, that is- the difficulty adjusts to the players gameplay. Perhaps the number of "deaths" is calculated somehow. The result is a reduction in the number of opponants seen in a city. Or at least I think so- firstly I speculated on the characters dissappearing on replay because of some randomised coding in the game.
Vilhelm Hammershøi : (1864-1916),Interesting exhibition in the VA, London. See Michael Palin. There is a common bridge with Fantin LaTour- not the plant pictures though. There is a very calm melacholy about all the pictures I have seen, the muted colours and natual light that is seen lees often these days. We’re used ot artificial light and the flat tonal surface that gives, this however creates a deep 3 dimensional space which couldn’t be done with geometry/perspective alone. The pictures are quiet, very quiet, full of thought and perception; it’s a time for contemplation.
