The Seattle Art Museum has some Rembrandt exhibit right now.  Rembrandt's work, I've decided, is ugly.  Waaaay overrated.  The GOOD stuff in the exhibit is all by Sir George Romney and Henry Raeburn, who I discovered at The Prado in Madrid over a year ago. So far, these are the ONLY names in "fine art" that have any value to me.  If anyone knows of books where their works are collected, I'd very much like to track them down.

Hard Edgeploration

Tonight I experimented with only drawing the hardest edges I could see, and not bothering with any edge that represented less than a 20-30% value shift.  Yielded some satisfactory results.

Using this theory until it breaks : A edge is soft until it needs to be hard.

A life too vague is worrisome.  A life too defined is dull.  When life is good, it hits some perfect mixture of the the two -- defined enough to have purpose, yet vague enough to be mysterious and exciting.  The same would seem to hold true in art.
