"I'm not a master. I'm a student-master, meaning that I have the knowledge of a master and the expertise of a master, but I'm still learning. So I'm a student-master. I don't believe in the word 'master.' I consider the master as such when they close the casket." - Bruce Lee
Seek, study, learn, employ! Nothing provides greater insight into a work of art than copying. Listing subtle revelations that can be discovered would be useless. You will appreciate only by doing!
