Those who are not conversant in works of art are often surprised at the high value set by connoisseurs on drawings which appear careless, and in every respect unfinished; but they are truly valuable... they give the idea of a whole.
- Sir Joshua Reynolds
We do not see things as they are, we see them as we are.

Beautiful.

    Beautiful is right. Delicate but perfect use of values!

    I just wanted to say that I love the Eye candy series. The presentation makes me linger over stuff I would normally rush over and appreciate in a glance. THANKS
