This young painting, showing the interaction of the colors brown and blue on a white ground, looks like this viewed vertically, with the brown on the left.
Rotate the painting 90 degrees; images seen in the painting change.
Rotate another 90 degrees. New images appear, old ones disappear.
One more turn and the painting looks like this.
Hey! A horse, looking behind a brown haired woman dressed in brown, talking to her grandmother.
The addition of a red tone changes relationships in the painting, and more images appear.
With the addition of a second blue pigment, visual possibilities change again, with new dimension and imagery available to the viewer.
Turn the picture over, top to bottom.
What you see depends on your point of view.
