Yesterday I sent off the first in what I think will be a world tour series in ATC's. I think most of the artists are more interested in countries that are less common - so hopefully after Egypt and Russia which is already underway we can head to lesser known places like Gabon, Palau, Seychelles, Togo, Isle of Man, Macau, Vanuatu...you get the picture. I enjoy doing research for an ATC subject.So, back to my ATC (Rebecca, if you are reading this you're gonna ruin the surprise for yourself!)the country is Egypt, I decided I wanted to do one of the queens, specifically Nefertiti - I realize it is hardly a unique Egyptian subject but I've always wondered what ever happened to her. She just disappeared from history in the earlier years of 1300BC, whether the remains have been found or which ones they are is the ongoing battle of the Egyptologists!
Ok, ok, sorry if I've made you a little drowsy explaining why I picked Nefertiti as my ATC subject.Well, there she is - so very sad that the scanner cannot pick up all it's shiny metallic goodness...the golds, silvers and coppers, so much prettier to see it in person, I used rust (real rust) for the background, gave it that nice oldish look, eh?
I'd though for about 2 seconds about putting "Walk Like an Egyptian" video here but man, I really don't like that song so instead how's about something from the talented Queen Freddie instead?
