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.
