Yesterday, I decided to find an art work I liked in a quiet room and look at it for 25 minutes. Look only at that. I found a piece from Abstract Impressionism.
Interesting experiment. It is amazing what I start to see and notice. I discover more as I look at it.
I see which strokes went over the white paint, which strokes were made over the black paint. What
strokes were made under.
Some of the black seems wet.
I see that not all the white is the same white. Not all the black is the same black. I see a darker black and a lighter black.
I see the width of the brushes.
I thought about the movements, the ballet, the artist's body made while he painted.
The artist's signature is absent. I found out when I researched it later that the work is indeed signed but on the back.
