Validation By Camera.

Here's a sketchbook study I did of Lucia....

Lucia With Green Background (Watercolor and gouache in Moleskine sketchbook, 5x8").

I bought a Sony Cyber-shot camera a few months ago.  It's small, convenient, and takes great pictures.  When I pointed the camera at my drawing, it identified the face and framed it.  There's a certain validation that occurs when the camera interprets a portrait I drew as an actual person's head. It's technical confirmation that I'm getting something right.

After I took the picture, the screen displayed a funny, yet impressive message.  The camera alerted me that the person had blinked.  Smart camera.
