Comfort Zone of Technique

What is most distinctive in this portrait are the brush strokes. Harking back to an earlier age, Seurat used dabs of paint and Dick used bold dashes here, creating a unified texture that when view from a distance would blend and smooth out. An artist will experiment until he settles down into his “Comfort Zone of Technique”.
