On the screen, on the flesh

Recently did a quick trip to Liverpool to visit their museums, if you ever go, i highly recommend Lady Lever Art Gallery and Walker Art Gallery.

 So much of my "art education" was done while looking at the screen of a computer and prints. Studying composition, values, colors etc... But if there is something that a screen(digital) or any other reproduction does not give is, a sense of scale, and to a certain extent, humanity. The brush marks, the impasto, the effect of the light over the glazing, all of it, results and making of the artist.
 (Re)Discovering pictures that i love and study in flesh is a very different, most of the times better, experience.
