I think this vesuvianite from the Ploum gallery that Jordi just posted would be an excellent candidate.

You should ask it to Ploum (you can do it by PM) but I'm almost sure he will be happy letting you work with it.

Same thing if finally you decide to use another image from some one else...

The foto you choose Ed is wonderful, but a little bit difficult. We should wait, wich mineral the other artist will prefer.
Of course should the fotograph be involved. I wished the fotos would be a little bit larger, may be he has the same foto once more in higher resolution?
If you like to see a new painting from yesterday... Hinsdalit

I'm sure this runs against the sensibilities of our fine artists, but it might be fun to have a non-binding vote of our members as to which photo would be reproduced. Maybe keep it to the archives of the two mentioned photographers, or not. I would not view this as a competition because it is non-binding, and all the images posted here have some artistic value, even some of the worst one's (illustrative of how not to do it). Feel free to reject this idea out of hand as it is the product of a vacant mind. I'm snowed in and have no access to the field, for now. A happy and productive New Year to all. And thank you, Jordi, for your efforts in bringing the beauty, science and love of natural history to all.

Sorry, I dont't understand, what the voting should be about. My english is not perfect. Do you mean a kind of voting which photographers is the best (his fotos are the best to be used for artistic reproduction)?

It's not a vote on who's best. I think that would be fruitless, as all contributions have merit. In it's harshest interpretation, it would be a vote imposing the will of the forum on you fine artists, which when put that way, sounds like a really bad idea. I in no way mean to pass judgment on my fellow enthusiasts or their abilities, just a way of voicing opinion on which specimens we might like to see rendered in your particular technique. As i said, maybe it's a bad idea and leave it up to the artist alone to decide. In that case please for give the trespass.

Schwertner, I was worried the picture I chose might be too difficult. Vic, I actually like your idea of having non-participants decide which specimen to paint or at least narrow it down to a few that we can choose from. The reason I like it is that it might be difficult for us to all agree on which one to paint and if it's up to the rest of the forum or one designated person, then we use what we get and rise to the challenge in our own ways. It would be like Iron Chef. And like Scwertner said, it's best to select from images where a high resolution copy is available.

I don't mind. I know, every artist has its own technic and the material is different. Steve uses a black background, I take a white one. In the German Mineralatlas I hear already different voices, so I can say some people like drawings and some like painting. Everybody has its own liking.
If the other artists agree, to have a voting, why not? And if the members agree to vote, why not?

When I read what Ed wrote, I think I misunderstood the voting once more. It seems to me now that the members shall vote, which mineral the artists should paint, is that right?

If you are looking for someone to offer up a specimen for painting, this one might be a good candidate. It has nice 3-dimensionality.

We had some voting in the past in the Spanish side and we always had troubles with it. I believe that the best is to do the project but without competition, just by the pleasure to do it and offer a different vision of the same specimen by different artists. BTW, maybe Susan Robinson from Rock & Minerals could like the idea and the final result... ;-)

Also, as it is almost impossible to find a specimen which pleases every artist I propose simplify and use the first specimen proposed, the one suggested for Turbo:

I send a message to Ploum and he said it is not a problem if we use his image in our artistic study.

Here is a link he gave me with the best resolution: http://www.alpinismeetmineraux.fr/mineralogie/macro/supermacro/supermacro1009.htm

And here is the full gallery he sent me:

Hallo, very good Ed, I checked the list and found 3 favorite fotos:
list 35 above left, list 92 down left, list 18 right in the middle.
I wonder which foto you and the others will prefer.

I am happy to try any. I like to challenge myself anyway. And if I don't like the result, I throw it away :o)

In many art courses, students are asked to all paint the same subject. Surely there must be others who would like to participate?

By the way, I had not seen Ploum's gallery before. Stunning photos!

Regards
Steve
