the wop

I like the ability to lightly handle the paint in a work on paper. Flicks of the wrist and the tools can be held very lightly, rendering impressive effects on the painting. Something changes with a canvas covered big panel. I don't think you can merely increase the size of the tools, either.

my favorite comparison is of a gekko that can walk on a ceiling versus a borontosaurus whose scale is on the other extreme.

Flicks and smears, twists of the wrist.
