“we are not very good at looking.”
...if we continue to look—if we truly focus our whole attention on the picture—then we’ll start to move away from distraction and will discover increasing invention. We’ll start to ask ourselves detailed questions about the picture. Is it a portrait or a landscape? Is it abstract or realistic? What colors define it? Where are its shadows, its highlights? What story does the picture tell, and what emotions does this story potentially evoke within us, the viewers?"
