There’s many different ways to take away meaning from a painting. However, I find photographs of paintings to be severely lacking. I like to look at sections of a painting, or from different views so that any inferences reveal themselves…of course, if what I intended the viewer to take away from this isn’t immediately recognizable, ask yourself what would prompt an angel to smoke? The stress of the job (sitting on someone’s shoulder) of battling evil? We need more angels.
