A few years back I got the chance to experience standing in front of a Salvador Dali painting in Spain. A fin thing to do when I look at paintings is not only look at the artwork, but stand in front of it and imagine that the original artist stood the exact distance from the work when they worked on it. AS if you're stepping into their shoes when creating the piece. A bit too crazy for you? Here's my sketch of the surrealist painter and huge influencer of my own artwork.
