Size Matters

Just now, in the fresh light of a new day, reappraising the self portrait from my last post. I really do like it (apart from my ugly mug in it).

What I mean is, I really like the balance, the light and dark spaces, the figure and ground as it were.

It doesn’t work small though. The face looks lost. Large however, the balance works out, and it becomes almost like a framed print with a large mat, which is something that often works well. Size does matter.
