Description

This painting is made of tiny scratched and stroked lines. Painted 'Alla Prima' working quickly through the wet paint. The eye wants to go closer, drawn in to the detail. But the detail won't uncover the whole. We need to step back and take it all in. We get too close to things. We lose our perspective. Once that is lost. So is our understanding.
