I have no need to write much. I have a need to follow the given path. The painting "Pond" has cleared and I see its requirements. Problem solving in painting is similar to watching a complex mystery novel unfold in the process of its reading. I read the painting, day after day, and suddenly its mystery is solved and I know how it must finish.
The one drawing of the day looks better in person (as is true with nearly all works of art). The reproduction here is particularly annoying in the man's torso. In actual viewing the contrast between the man's head and his torso works well.
